Watch Faces of Sepsis

What is Sepsis Awareness Month

Every 2 minutes someone dies from sepsis in the U.S. – that’s more than from prostate cancer, breast cancer and AIDS combined.

This Sepsis Awareness Month, join us in raising awareness and saving lives from sepsis.

Sepsis is treatable, especially with early recognition and care. You can help by learning the signs and symptoms of sepsis and taking action in your community to spread the word.
