World Tuberculosis Day

The Northwestern Health Unit is promoting World Tuberculosis Day.
Public Health Nurse Chanda McAuley says the disease is more prevalent in Canada than most people think.

McAuley says about 16 hundred people a year in Canada get diagnosed with TB.

McAuley says the health unit has plenty of information about TB and offers treatment for both  active and latent forms of the disease.
