Abstract

Date:  March 25, 2021

Time: 11:00am PDT

 

This is the second World TB Day and the end of the first full year since the world encountered COVID-19. We have all worked feverishly to manage this pandemic and its consequences. What impact has this new respiratory infectious disease had on the chronic pandemic of tuberculosis? What can we do to avoid mistakes made in the U.S. 35 years ago, when TB rates rose by 20% due to diverted attentions? Can we use this time to actually make progress toward elimination of TB in the U.S.? 

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on tuberculosis incidence, recognition and care
  • Review the recent US public health data on TB and LTBI, including testing and diagnostic methods
  • Review the role of IGRA testing and LTBI treatment in these challenging times

 

 

Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
