Have Training, Will Travel: New Allies in our Tuberculosis Work
At the end of January, 12 new RESULTS allies gathered in Washington, DC, for an intense and enjoyable two days of training. Each of these allies has experience with tuberculosis (TB), either through personal experience with the disease or through professional expertise. The participants applied for the training with the hope of learning specific strategies and skills that will enhance their role as print and live media spokespersons for the end of TB. Each of these allies has committed to giving 10 days of the 2011 calendar year to partnering with our activists, pledging to travel to towns and cities in which our grassroots partners are doing their work. The engaging messages of these trainees paired with the advocacy savvy of our grassroots partners will certainly help us make even more progress in our campaign to stop this preventable, treatable, curable disease.
