From 2012-2014 I served as a member of the TB/HIV team at the Division of Global HIV/AIDS at the CDC. From 2015-2017, I was a postdoctoral research fellow in the TB transmission group headed by Dr. Ed Nardell at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. This website serves as my TB advocacy page. TB is a neglected “Time Bomb.” Increased attention to TB transmission requires political commitment expressed in financial investment and supportive legal frameworks. An empowered group of health care workers who are committed to safeguarding themselves and those they care for is essential for change. Please join us in this work.
