Ask Hartford Hospital to End the Use of Pigs in its ATLS Courses

Please take a minute to ask Hartford Hospital CEO Jeffrey Flaks to immediately replace the use of live pigs in his hospital’s Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) courses. We have provided text for you, but if you decide to write your own message, please be polite and encouraging. Here are some talking points:

  • Please replace the use of live pigs in your ATLS courses with superior human-based training methods.
  • Your hospital conducts the only ATLS courses in Connecticut involving live animals.
  • Since your hospital already owns the TraumaMan System, there is no justification for this continued animal use.
  • Please end this cruel and unnecessary practice immediately.

Click the "Send Message" button and your e-mail will automatically be sent to Mr. Flaks.
