Two 20 hour trainings available this July

The Katuah Medics are happy to announce two upcoming 20 hour street medic trainings this July! One will be held in Nashville July 6-8 and one in Asheville July 20-22.

Street medics, or action medics, are volunteers with varying degrees of medical training who attend protests and demonstrations to provide medical care such as first aid, and work within communities to promote health and wellness. This 20 hour trainings will run Friday evening and all day Saturday and Sunday. The trainings will cover basic first aid and trauma response, and prepare trainees to medic at demonstrations as well as within their own communities. After completing the training, you will be qualified to run as a marked medic at demonstrations. You must be able to attend the full training - this is a condensed course, so partial attendances are not permitted.
