TB Forum September 8th

 Did you know that our state reports the highest number of TB cases in the US and Los Angeles County reports the highest number of cases in CA?  The rate of TB among African Americans is 5 times greater than the rate among Caucasians in Los Angeles County. Accordingly, the TB Coalition of Los Angeles County is  hosting a forum to raise awareness and share current information. Your organization as been identified as a leader in addressing the needs of the community and so we would like to invite a representative to learn more about how you can help prevent and control TB among your constituents.
