Hero Image Providers Listening Sepsis

Every two minutes someone dies from sepsis in the U.S. – that’s more than from prostate cancer, breast cancer and AIDS combined. Sepsis is a medical emergency in the Commonwealth and the Massachusetts Sepsis Consortium brings together leading experts and advocates from across the state to raise awareness and save lives. 

Sepsis is treatable, especially with early diagnosis and treatment. We'll be working together to make sure everyone knows about the signs and symptoms while also developing new resources for patients and providers to recognize, treat and beat this illness.
