World TB Day is designed to build public awareness that tuberculosis today remains an epidemic in much of the world, causing the deaths of nearly one-and-a-half million people each year, mostly in developing countries. More than one-third of the world’s population is infected with TB, including people here in Washington state.

Enrique Cerna of KCTS 9 will lead a discussion of local tuberculosis experts, including representatives from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Washington State Department of Health.

IDRI is a sponsor of the event and members of IDRI’s TB team will host an interactive exhibit.
