September is Sepsis Awareness Month. 

Every 20 seconds in the U.S. is hospitalized with sepsis and every two minutes someone in the United States dies of sepsis. 

Western New York hospitals admitted nearly 9,000 adults age 18 and up for sepsis just last year. 

Linda talks with Dr. Richard Vienne, vice president and chief medical officer at Univera Health Care about sepsis.
