Incredibly moving ceremony today to mark the launch of the Massachusetts Sepsis Consortium. We heard from Tina Edwards and her sisters on their personal experience with losing their mother to sepsis in 2015. We heard from a woman who spoke about her own experience as a sepsis survivor, eventually returning to school to become a nurse and help others avoid the trauma she experienced with sepsis. These women and many others in the healthcare industry have come together to form the Massachusetts Sepsis Consortium, which aims to raise awareness and disseminate strategies for prompt diagnosis and treatment of sepsis.
