A documentary created by director, Austen Deery
The SUDC Foundation extends its deepest gratitude to Austen and all the participants of this amazing documentary. In this 8 minute film, Mr. Deery captures the heart of the SUDC experience as well as the hurdles and efforts of its dedicated advocates.


Thank you to all those who were able to join us at the first multidisciplinary medical conference on SUDC which featured critical research updates and best practices from the fields of epidemiology, pathology, genetics, cardiology, neurology and palliative care. Over 225 attendees joined us from 35 U.S. states and 5 countries.

Jointly provided by NYU Post-Graduate Medical School and the SUDC Foundation, the conference welcomed the participation of cross-discipline medical professionals, including physicians (MDs and ODs), pathologists, medical examiners, nurses, basic science researchers, public health officials, investigators, other clinicians and affected family members. Thank you also to the distinguished speakers who donated their time to shed light on these tragedies and inform the medical community of best practices to combat SUDC.

Several of the conference presentations will be made available at sudc.org shortly. To stay updated, please register to receive the SUDC Foundation monthly e-newsletter. 

Thank you for your dedication to uncovering the causes of SUDC, identifying prevention measures and the compassionate and effective care of families affected.
