The centerpiece of the education effort is an animated short film called “Sepsis in Older Americans: Saving Lives through Early Recognition.”
“This film was created to spread the word about sepsis in a way that is easy to understand and easy to share,” says Lindsay Clarke, vice president of Health Programs for the Alliance. “We invite people who watch this film to share it with their friends and family. The more people we can educate on detecting the early signs of sepsis, the more lives we can save.”
Clarke encourages the sharing of the film through social media. During May, the Alliance is sending out tweets under the hashtag #sepsisawareness offering sepsis facts and tips at its Twitter handle @aging_research.
