TB Education in Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal Youth in the Prairies

This guide, Tuberculosis Education for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Youth, was developed to provide high school teachers across Canada, but in particular in the Prairie Provinces, with an abundance of information related to tuberculosis identification, the connection of tuberculosis to other diseases and behaviors, and tuberculosis history that they might use in the classroom.

Tuberculosis has been called a “social disease with a medical aspect”, this guide emphasizes that. Included are suggested activities and resources to help teachers build their lessons. In addition, suggestions about how to fit the topic of TB in to a number of different subject areas and adaptations for all activities are provided.

Our TB Education Resource Guide was chosen to be the TB Highlight of the month in the CDC’s Find TB Resources E-Newsletter for the month of August, 2012!
