A Message from Dr. Jonathan Golub, 2022 Program Chair/Vice President, The Union-NAR

We hope you will join us in Vancouver for the END TB: 27th Annual Conference of The Union - North America Region! Our multidisciplinary planning committee has assembled an engaging lineup of speakers that will cover timely topics in TB prevention and care, including the updated Global Plan to End TB, TB and pregnancy, subclinical TB, community engagement, recent therapeutic trials, and novel diagnostics. We are also thrilled to have Dr. Barbara Seaworth and Dr. Amy Kirby as our keynote speakers for the George Comstock Lecture and the Beyond TB Lectures respectively. This year we have expanded our programming on challenging clinical TB cases chaired by our multidisciplinary expert panel. We also hope you will join us early for our free pre-conference postgraduate workshops on research literacy and advocacy for clinicians, researchers and survivors, and an introduction to implementation science. We look forward to welcoming you in Vancouver, along with a diverse group of TB advocates, survivors, scientists, clinicians, and program managers, to network and discuss the latest in TB.
