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.
