[Call to register] Webinar: What's the link? Diabetes, latent TB, active TB disease and MDR-TB

[Watch webinar recording] [Listen/ download audio podcast] One of the important highlights at the 48th Union World Conference on Lung Health was the study that probed if diabetes affects latent (or dormant) TB infection. In lead up to 2017 World Diabetes Day, key experts will share more on the linkages between diabetes and latent TB, active TB disease and drug resistant TB (as well as tobacco use).

Earlier studies have shown that people with diabetes ( especially those who have poor glycemic control or diabetes control) are at high risk to develop active TB disease. But only a few studies done before, have investigated the relationship between diabetes and latent TB infection, and none of these studies have been population-based and were all in high-risk individuals.

Join us on Tuesday, 24th October Webinar with lead TB-Diabetes experts, including one of the scientists behind the first-ever population based study on latent TB and diabetes.
