HIV and TB: Texas & beyond
In observance of World TB Day on Tuesday, March 18, the Global Health Council has organized a free lunch symposium about the collision of HIV and TB, both in Texas and globally. Local and nationally recognized experts will examine the impact of TB in Texas, the deadly synergy of HIV and TB, and ways in which strategic partnerships can focus on combating the co-epidemic here and abroad.
The forum will be at the Hyatt Regency Austin, 208 Barton Springs Road, from noon to 2:00pm. The event, including lunch, is free, but there is limited seating, so advance registration is required. Members of civic and community-based organizations, students, public health professionals, members of the faith community, and others interested in local and global health issues are urged to attend.
The GHC is the world's preeminent membership organization of governments, foundations, and private sector members dedicated to improving world health. The lunch forum is supported by the Gates, R. W. Johnson, Packard, and Rockefeller Foundations. Numerous local sponsors include, in part, AIDS Services of Austin, Texas Department of Health, Texas Medical Association, PAHO, and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
