The activities aim to raise the public's awareness of sepsis — which kills 258,000 Americans annually — as well as unite healthcare providers to promote sepsis education and raise funds for sepsis awareness programs.

"Sepsis has a dramatic impact on thousands of Michigan residents, and we are thrilled to be working with Sepsis Alliance to raise sepsis awareness among the public in Michigan," said Phyllis McLellan, MHA Keystone Center's director of performance improvement. "We hope we can save lives by raising awareness through the Michigan Stomp Out Sepsis events."
