As the continuing COVID-19 pandemic is changing the landscape of health research and care, the importance of knowledge dissemination to improve the health literacy of ALL Canadians and empower them to take charge of their own health can’t be understated

“Transforming the Trajectory of Sepsis Research: A Multidisciplinary Forum that Redefines the Who, What, Why, and How”, will take place at the Hamilton Art Gallery on World Sepsis Day, September 13th, following by our two-day Sepsis Canada Scientific Meeting. As infrastructure in Hamilton, and across Canada, from coast to coast, light up pink for World Sepsis Day, this event will kick off important conversations on sepsis research and care.
