TriState Health Foundation receives a $5,000 donation
from Clearwater Paper to support the Trauma Prevention Program’s Stop the Bleed Kits. The Trauma
Injury Prevention Program is currently facilitating a Stop the Bleed School Project throughout Asotin
County. Stop the Bleed’s primary purpose is to educate, empower, and equip bystanders to act during a
bleeding emergency prior to the arrival of first responders.

Dedicated staff in the Emergency department lead TriState Health’s Trauma Injury Prevention Program
(TIPP). Each year, the TIPP team focuses on community education to help reduce trauma-related injuries
that can cause disability or death. The program provides information on ways to reduce injuries and
assists individuals and families experiencing financial hardship, giving them the tools they need to lower
their risk of injuries.

“All of us at Clearwater Paper are pleased be part of this important program,” said Matt VanVleet,
Government & Community Affairs Director at Clearwater Paper. “Being able to help fund these critical
blood/trauma kits makes so much sense to us because it is directly tangible to protecting health and
lives in our community.”
