The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at El Paso Office of Global Health’s monthly Perspectives Film Series presents the documentary Survival: The Deadly Combination on Thursday, March 27th from noon to 1 p.m., at the MEB, room 1110. The film coincides with World Tuberculosis Awareness Month and depicts how certain strains of tuberculosis are developing resistance to almost every drug available, which has led to fears of an epidemic. In some countries, health authorities have locked up patients diagnosed with Multi-drug resistant TB ( MDR-TB / XDR-TB) in an effort to stop the disease from spreading. Education and awareness will be key factors in stopping the spread of TB. Join the Office of Global Health to learn more about this very important topic .
Lunch will be provided for the first 50 people.
