TB Center wins Joe B. Ware Partner Service Award

During the 2022 Annual Conference of the National Tuberculosis Controllers Association, The Vanderbilt TB Center was awarded the Joe B. Ware Partner Service Award.
The award “recognizes an organization that has made a significant effort and/or contribution to the mission of TB control and prevention through partnership activities with public health TB programs.”

Jason Cummins, Director of the TB Elimination Program for the Tennessee Department of Health nominated the Center. “The Center’s research and influence reaches institutions both domestically and internationally.” He continues. “The Center and Dr. Sterling have been active in the TB Trials Consortium. On a local and state level, Dr. Sterling and others in the Center provide consultation and direct patient care to clients at the Metro Nashville Public Health Department TB Clinic.”

The TB Center is grateful for this recognition and for the incredible network of dedicated individuals who make this work possible.
