Alliance Discussion: Sepsis: Gaining Ground Against a Lethal Threat

May 29 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

Sepsis, a life-threatening emergency that happens when your body’s response to an infection damages vital organs, affects over 1.7 million people and takes the lives of over 6,800 children in the U.S. each year. On Wednesday, May 29 at noon E.T. Thomas Heymann, President & CEO of Sepsis Alliance, and Dr. Mallory Perry-Eaddy, Assistant Professor at the University of Connecticut School of Nursing and member of the Sepsis Alliance Advisory Board joined us to discuss the devastating effects of sepsis on children and people of all ages and how Sepsis Alliance is working to promote needed research, raise sepsis awareness in the community, and educate healthcare professionals to diagnose and treat sepsis faster, to save lives.
