Let’s Talk about Sepsis During National Minority Health Month

Protect Yourself, Loved Ones, and Patients from the
Life-Threatening Condition Called Sepsis
This National Minority Health Month, CDC encourages patients, their loved ones, and healthcare professionals to share our free Get Ahead of Sepsis educational materials, including our NEW “It’s time to talk about sepsis” poster:
Do You Know About Sepsis
Anyone can get an infection, and almost any infection can lead to sepsis. However, did you know people with chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes, lung disease, cancer, and kidney disease are at higher risk? Chronic conditions can be more common among minority groups, putting those groups at increased risk for developing infections that can lead to sepsis. We want everyone to know the risks, spot the signs and symptoms, and ACT FAST if they suspect sepsis.
Antibiotics are critical tools for treating a number of common infections and for life-threatening conditions, including sepsis. Prescribing the right antibiotic at the right time, in the right dose, and for the right duration helps fight antibiotic resistance, protects patients from unnecessary side effects from antibiotics, and helps make sure life-saving antibiotics will work when we need them.
Learn more about preventing infections that can lead to sepsis and download additional FREE educational resources–including fact sheets, brochures, infographics, digital and social media, and shareable videos.
Learn more about antibiotic use and how you can Be Antibiotics Aware.

It’s National Minority Health Month! Share our FREE #GetAheadofSepsis educational materials to know the risks, spot the signs and symptoms, and ACT FAST if you suspect sepsis. #NMHM18
