The new CTCA Executive Committee made it their top priority to bring the CA TB community together to focus on TB and connect with each other during this extended emergency COVID-19 response. We are excited to announce that we will host two opportunities to gather in November.  The first is on Thursday, November 12th (1-3PM PST), with two hours of educational content. The second is on Tuesday, November 17th (9-11AM PST), with a two hour Fall TB Controllers Meeting. I’ll send an Outlook invitation for both meetings to add to your calendars. Both meetings are free.  You must register to attend by 11/6/20. The registration form is on the bottom of the event page on ctca.org. The connection information will be sent to all registered on 11/6.

On November 12th (1-3 PM PST) we’ll share two hours from our planned 2020 Spring Conference opening plenary session: Our state TB epidemiology update, California, TB Elimination Landscape, presented by leaders from the California Department of Public Health TB Control Branch, followed by an innovative TB elimination strategy presented by Jacek Skarbinski, MD, at Kaiser Permanente, Northern California, Moving TB prevention cascade forward in a large primary care setting.

Two hours of CMEs/CEUs will be available for those who attend the full program on November 12th and complete the evaluation that will be emailed to those registered by 11/6/20. This evaluation must be completed by 11/27.

We are excited to come together and focus on TB during this ongoing COVID-19 response. We hope you will be able to join us. Again, there is no cost to attend either of these meetings, and all are welcome. You must pre-register. The deadline for registration is 11/6/20.
