The State TB control officer coordinates care for all TB cases in the state with input from local PCP's or chest MD's. The office also coordinates all LTBI cases as these are reportable in Arkansas. Any healthcare provider can contact our office for guidance regarding care of active or suspected TB cases, and LTBI cases.
