During her presidential address at the 2024 Critical Care Congress opening session, SCCM’s 53rd President, Lauren R. Sorce, PhD, RN, CPNP-AC/PC, FCCM, reflected on the importance of growth in critical care and how SCCM can continue to grow in essential areas.

“SCCM’s commitment to improve care of the critically ill and injured across the planet remains consistent and guides us in every decision we make,” said Dr. Sorce. “As a global leader in healthcare, we are a force for good, helping to unlock the best care possible for critically ill and injured patients in every country, community, and setting both in the U.S. and globally. The continued support of SCCM members, donors, sponsors, advertisers, and organizational partners is essential to our success. Because of all of you, our collective efforts have a major impact on the care of the critically ill and injured everywhere.

“So how will you choose growth?”
