The Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) is poised to offer support during emergency responses. Since 1990, SCCM has responded to more than 45 emergencies in the United States and worldwide, including terror attacks, hurricanes, earthquakes, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now is your chance to learn more about how donations to SCCM are used to improve the care of critically ill and injured patients.

SCCM's responses are varied and tailored to the needs of those affected. Examples include:
  • Deploying thousands of volunteers to aid in on-the-ground patient care
  • Developing online resources to train over 500,000 non-ICU clinicians during COVID-19
  • Sending emergency and basic supplies to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria
  • Coordinating with emergency response groups to send medical supplies and equipment
  • Setting up a tele-ICU support system in Haiti to increase response capacity
None of these activities would be possible without generous donations to SCCM's disaster relief fund. In this webcast, SCCM CEO and Executive Vice-President David J. Martin, CAE, will provide an overview of SCCM's emergency response activities and how SCCM's response has grown over the years. This is a unique opportunity to attend a presentation and question-and-answer session with SCCM leadership. See how SCCM puts donations into action.

Participants are encouraged to ask about any related topics at the time of registration or live during the session.
