placeholder image


Date: Tuesday, September 17th at 4:00 p.m.

Location: VCU Health CMH Education Center located inside the C.A.R.E. Building

Our Speaker: Dr. Yub Raj Sedhai



Sepsis is the body’s extreme response to an infection which can lead to tissue damage,

organ failure, amputations and death. It is a life-threatening medical emergency.
Sepsis happens when an infection you already have —in your skin, lungs, urinary tract, or
somewhere else—triggers a chain reaction throughout your body.

Without timely treatment, sepsis can rapidly lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death.

Attend this month’s CORE program to learn:

• Who gets sepsis?
• What are the symptoms?
• What causes sepsis?
• Who is at risk?
• How can sepsis be prevented?

Good Health Begins With Good Information. Registration is required to attend.
