As a trauma surgeon, Jacobs was all too aware that the primary cause of preventable death, post-trauma, is hemorrhage. But if addressed quickly enough, even with the traumatic amputation of a limb, bleeding from an extremity wound can always be controlled: no one should bleed to death from such an injury.

They also felt deeply that they needed to provide real world exposure to the entire arc of care for all professionals that interact in these situations to improve communication–and ultimately care. They went to work recruiting care partners that might be able to help them put together a training offering and were able to provide a full day trauma symposium for free to medical personnel in their area.
