The Fight to End TB in Alaska
Presented by Chanda Hesson, BSN, RN & Bruce Chandler, MD
It may be prehistoric, but it’s definitely not ancient history.
For over 200 years, tuberculosis has plagued our state – and cases are surging. In 2022, active TB cases increased by 66% in Alaska.
Join us to hear from two members of the State’s TB Team: Chanda Hesson, BSN, RN and Bruce Chandler, MD. Delve into the epidemiology of TB to discover how this disease affects the Alaskan population. You will learn about the distribution of cases in Alaska, specific risk factors, and reporting requirements. Our expert presenters will also discuss the role of public health in controlling and eliminating tuberculosis.
Registration is required. After registering, you will receive an email with a link to join the presentation on Zoom. Please plan to join the webinar a few minutes early.
Tuesday Talks is a free educational series created specifically for Alaskan nurses. Every month, we explore a unique and enriching topic with a local expert. Designed to elevate your nursing knowledge and practice, Tuesday Talks offers free contact hours to participants. The event series is hosted on Zoom and welcomes nurses across Alaska. Attendance is open to both AaNA members and non-members.
The registration link for Tuesday Talks will be posted at the beginning of each month. Be sure to check back then to learn more and sign up!
