To honor those who are making a difference in raising sepsis awareness, Sepsis Alliance is marking Sepsis Awareness Month by hosting its second annual Sepsis Heroes event on September 12, 2013, recognizing individuals and organizations that have made incredible strides in raising awareness of this deadly disease.

“We are making progress, but there is so much more effort that needs to be done – both by industry and government – to educate the public about the dangers of sepsis,” concluded Heymann. “Greater awareness will reduce healthcare costs and increase positive outcomes in hospital settings, which could translate into thousands of lives being saved.”

This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Interactive on behalf of Sepsis Alliance from June 4-6, 2013 among 2,572 adults ages 18 and older. The online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated. For complete survey methodology, including weighting variables, please contact Sepsis Alliance at 877-SEPSIS-1.
