Help Us Celebrate World Sepsis Awareness Day on Sept. 13

This year, the Cook Children’s Sepsis Committee and Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee have combined forces to raise awareness for World Sepsis Day on Tuesday, Sept. 13. Their goal is to stamp out sepsis by choosing the right antibiotics for the right patients at the right time. In other news, they are making huge strides in our sepsis reduction goals!

A special thank you to Javier Gelvez, M.D., PICU physician, and the Sepsis Committee team members who are leading the way. 

All Cook Children's employees can learn more about sepsis and earn the chance to win prizes by completing a special crossword puzzle and wordsearch. You can download both files on the upper right-hand side of this page.

To be eligible for a prize basket, be sure to email your completed puzzles to zeroharm@cookchildrens.org by Monday, Sept. 19.
