At the 2004 National Tuberculosis Controllers’ Association
(NTCA) conference, held June 9-11, 2004, in Atlanta, Georgia, the
Communications, Education, and Behavioral Studies Branch (CEBSB)
of DTBE launched a marketing kickoff directed at TB program staff
www.findtbresources.org, a comprehensive, searchable TB education
and training resources Web site. The Web site exhibit booth featured
promotional items printed with the Web site address, such as business
cards, flashing buttons, and pens. The buttons had magnetic flashing
lights and the catchy slogans “I’ve Got TB (resources) and “Got
TB Resources?” and were very popular with NTCA conference participants.
Web site e-newsletter
Another strategy for marketing the TB Education & Training
Resources Website is the monthly newsletter that is e-mailed
to TB-EDucate and TB Education and Training Network (TB ETN) members.
The e-newsletter includes information on the website’s current “Highlight
of the Month,” and promotes materials recently added to the database.

My colleagues and I in the
Education & Training Department at the New Jersey Medical
School National TB Center have found the findtbresources website
to be most helpful. More often than not, our search quickly
leads us to just the right resource. In addition, we refer
other health care professionals and students to the website
to search for specific resources.

I have visited this site
several times. The last time involved looking for TB drug
fact sheets. I had tried other sources without much success.
I next tried the
findtbresources website. I found all kinds of drug fact
sheets and we are now in the process of reviewing and adapting
them for use in the state of Florida. This site is easy to
