TB ETN Second Annual Meeting and Workshop

On August 7-9, 2002, TB educators and trainers gathered in Atlanta, Georgia, for the second annual TB Education and Training Network (TB ETN) Meeting and Workshop. The theme of this year’s workshop was "Reaching Key Audiences Through Innovative TB Education and Training Methods." The meeting and workshop were attended by approximately 85 TB ETN members representing TB programs, correctional facilities, federal agencies, universities, the American Lung Association, National TB Model Centers, and international organizations interested in TB education and training issues.

Participants were very pleased with the number of skills they learned during the workshop from the guest faculty such as Julie Wallace from Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Washington, and Martha Alexander from CDC and Emory University. Highlights of the workshop included presentations from Kathy Hursen, Suzy Peters, and Judi Bulmer about educational materials their programs developed and lessons learned during the process. Participants also enjoyed the opportunity to share and discuss educational materials exhibited at the educational materials display.

During the meeting, participants had the opportunity to discuss and develop subcommittees and to make decisions about the future of TB ETN. Proposed subcommittees include Membership, Marketing and Communications, Conference Planning, Cultural Competency, and Project Development Feedback.
