We look forward to bringing together community clinics and health centers, community-based organizations, community groups, health departments, and academic institutions to showcase innovative projects, strategies and initiatives, collaboration efforts, and best practices.

This summit will be entirely virtual where you can look forward to workshop and poster presentations by leading TB experts, networking lounges, and a panel discussion with federal and regional partners. Workshop presentations will be focused on the following topic areas related to TB and LTBI:

  • Community Engagement
