Summary: 

CCGHE broadcasts live TB Case Conferences and provides a global audience with open access to all live and archived webcasts via the CCGHE website. Hosted by Dr. Maunank Shah (Johns Hopkins), this case-based conference serves as a forum where clinicians caring for individuals with active TB can discuss difficult and complicated clinical cases with the aim of aiding the real-time care of existing patients while reviewing the literature in an effort to guide and promote evidence-based management decisions. Discussants and participants include clinical TB experts from the Johns Hopkins University Division of Infectious Diseases, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and LA County TB program, Harvard University-Beth Israel as well as local and regional Health Departments; a range of diagnostic and therapeutic challenges and dilemmas are addressed, including management of co-morbidities (e.g. HIV) and drug-resistance.
