COURSE DESCRIPTION & OVERALL GOAL
This inaugural webinar will be hosted in honor of Dr. Thomas Garvey’s commitment to his patients as a primary care provider and longtime member of the Massachusetts Advisory Committee for the Elimination of TB (MACET). Dr. Garvey was committed to public health advocacy, education and TB elimination. In light of World TB Day, speakers will raise awareness of the social and economic consequences of TB, and provide an overview of global and local TB epidemiology. The keynote speaker will further discuss how policy, economics, and equity play a role in strengthening pandemic response.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This conference is open to physicians, nurses, residents, fellows, disease investigators, community health workers, and other public health staff who work in collaboration with TB control and prevention programs.

This educational activity will provide TB providers and programs with updates of the local and global status of TB control and discuss opportunities to strengthen pandemic response efforts in the future.
