World TB Day

Okay, we have taken a bit of a hiatus here and have all been swamped. Jaspal is just getting back in the swing of things after being in Mongolia for a year and similarly, Ben recently returned from Uganda. In any case Christine over at the global health group at Families USA (seems like everyone is starting some sort of global health team these days) prompted me to get back into it. Thanks to Christine for sending over their efforts on TB. The below screen shots say it all, click on the pics to check out what they are doing. They have launched this interactive game to educate people and admittedly I don’t know what the effectiveness of this is, but I have to give them a lot of credit for trying something new (a sometimes rare thing in public health). GO¬† Play Whack TB! —
