Public Forum on TB Lung Infection

The Perak Chest Society held a public forum today at 11.30 am at its secretariat to coincide with World TB Day.  TB incidence is increasing and we need to be well informed about the disease.  The talk attracted about 18 participants with nurses from Hospital Fatimah and Perak Community Specialist Hospital.  

Admission to the public forum is free but very surprisingly TB patients are not too keen to learn about the disease they are suffering from.  Hopefully the next meeting will have a larger audience!!
