TB EDUCATION AND TRAINING NETWORK UPDATE

2012 TB Education, Training, and Evaluation Network Conference

The 2012 TB Education, Training, and Evaluation Network Conference will take place September 18–20, 2012, at the W Atlanta Midtown hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. For the fourth year, the TB Education and Training Network (TB ETN) and the TB Program Evaluation Network (TB PEN) will join forces for this conference to highlight common aspects of TB, education, training, and evaluation.

The theme for this year’s conference is Lights, Camera, Action: Setting the Stage for TB Elimination. The opening plenary will focus on lessons learned from past and present disease eradication efforts and how health educators and evaluators can apply these lessons to TB elimination. Other topics include how to effectively present TB data, create partnerships between TB patients and health care workers, and take action to eliminate TB. Conference activities will also include skills-based workshops, informational presentations, and networking opportunities.

For more information about the conference, please visit the TB ETN conference website.

 

TB ETN Educator of the Year and Project Excellence Awards Open for Nominations

This is the third year TB ETN will be presenting the TB Educator of the Year and Project Excellence Awards at the annual conference. These two awards were established in 2010 to recognize excellence in TB health education and training by TB ETN members around the world. TB ETN is currently accepting nominations for both awards.

The TB Educator of the Year award recognizes a TB ETN member who has shown dedication and leadership in the field of TB education and training. The Project Excellence award recognizes exceptional health education and training products or activities that have been developed by TB ETN members within the past 2 years.

To be eligible for either award, nominees must

  • Hold an “active” TB ETN membership* and
  • Be currently practicing in the area of TB education and training.

* Individuals must have been registered as an “active” member of TB ETN for at least 6 months prior to nomination. Participation in a TB ETN workgroup is not an eligibility requirement for the awards.

TB ETN members can self-nominate or be nominated by someone else. Nominations must be received no later than Friday, July 20, 2012. To access the nomination forms, please go to TB ETN section of the CDC TB website.
