Safiyya J. Mason, RN, and Anne Fuhlbrigge, MD, MS, accept an Institutional Partner Award from the Massachusetts Advisory Committee for the Elimination of Tuberculosis (MACET) on behalf of the BWH Tuberculosis Clinic at the State House on World TB Day March 24. Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) Commissioner John Auerbach and other representatives were also present at the ceremony.
“The control of tuberculosis in Massachusetts has always been a collaborative effort of federal, state and community resources,” said Edward A. Nardell, MD, of BWH’s Division of Global Health Equity, and co-chair of MACET. “BWH is the most recent hospital to support an official DPH TB clinic, filling a long-standing service gap in the Longwood Medical Area.”
