As September unfolds, it brings with it an opportunity to shed light on a critical but often misunderstood medical condition: sepsis. September is recognized globally as Sepsis Awareness Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness about this life-threatening condition, its prevention, and the importance of early detection and treatment. Sepsis remains a major public health concern, claiming countless lives each year. That being said, the Sepsis & Critical Illness Research Center (SCIRC) is a beacon of hope in the battle against sepsis. Our dedicated center plays a pivotal role in advancing our understanding of sepsis, finding innovative treatments, and improving outcomes for patients. As we commemorate Sepsis Awareness Month this September, it’s essential to highlight the remarkable work being done by organizations like the Sepsis & Critical Illness Research Center.
Dr. Philip Efron will be presenting, “Sepsis Awareness & Management,” at the Immunology & Infection Disease Interest Group (IIDIG). September 11, 2023, 12pm, Room 135 in the Harrell Medical Education Building

Keep an eye out for both of these features, scheduled to be shared in September.
