TBEI Community Outreach Committee
The goal of the Community Outreach Committee is to promote access to LTBI care in communities at high risk for TB, optimize the model for TB prevention in community outreach events involving partnerships to provide TB screening, testing, chest x-rays, LTBI clinical evaluation and treatment to high-risk individuals in a community setting. Services can be offered as a stand-alone activity or in collaboration with another community health event, such as a flu or COVID vaccination clinic.
