Sepsis Awareness Materials

Posted by on July 10th, 2018 Posted in: Health Information Literacy, Minority Health Concerns
Tags: ,


Anyone can get an infection and almost any infection can lead to sepsis. Minority groups living with chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes, lung disease, cancer, and kidney diseases are at higher risk for developing infections that can lead to sepsis. Everyone should know the risks, spot the signs and symptoms, and act fast if they suspect sepsis.

The CDC encourages patients and healthcare professionals to share the free Get Ahead of Sepsis educational materials, including fact sheets, brochures, infographics, digital and social media, and shareable videos, and the new “It’s time to talk about sepsis” poster.
