Each year, End Sepsis hosts the National Forum on Sepsis. The Forum brings together leaders in healthcare policy, government, critical care, patient advocacy, and biotechnology to identify and address challenges and opportunities in the sepsis crisis, forge new commitments, and build strong coalitions as we work to reduce the burden of sepsis on our society and our families.
Past speakers at the Forum have included Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY), Dr. Tom Frieden, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Dr. Patrick Conway, Chief Medical Officer for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), Dr. Konrad Reinhart, Chair of the Global Sepsis Alliance, and Jim Dwyer of the New York Times.
“Since last year, my perspective, my viewpoint, my actions have certainly changed. CMS was working in the area of sepsis, but after attending the Forum it became a compelling movement we had to get more traction on.”
- Jean Moody-Williams, Deputy Director of the Center for Clinical Standards and Quality, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
