Sepsis Heroes
An Evening Celebrating Champions of Sepsis Awareness

Save the Date! September 17, 2015 at Arena NYC

Sepsis Alliance will host its 4th annual Sepsis Heroes on September 17, 2015. We were delighted with the evening's success last year, and wish to thank all Heroes, sponsors, attendees and all who supported the event.

Last year, we honored:

  • Every Mother Counts, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
  • Intermountain Healthcare, a healthcare system that developed a sepsis checklist for providers, which cut sepsis mortality rates.
  • Jeff and Helene Zehnder, the couple behind the creation of the Raleigh, NC, Step On Sepsis Inaugural 5K Road Race & Walk, which was held this past March. Helene is also a nurse.
  • Laura Messineo, a nurse who is a driving force for sepsis education in her health system. Aside from working to improve sepsis care, Laura has traveled to Washington, DC, to advocate for better sepsis awareness.

Sepsis Heroes Keynote Speaker

The keynote speaker for the 2014 Sepsis Heroes was Paul Levy, former President and CEO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) in Boston, Mass., and an advocate for patient-driven care and elimination of preventable harm.

Mr. Levy publishes the blog Not Running a Hospital, where he discusses various healthcare and medical issues. He began this blog seven years ago, when he was one of very few hospital CEOs to share thoughts publicly about hospitals, medicine, and health care issues.

Musical Guest

Special musical guest, Daniel Emmet, performed two songs for the event’s guests, including one original piece written for Sepsis Alliance.
