First, a thought of the day:

The only change that matters is the change that happens after you leave.” Corollary: “The only change that lasts is the change you make with others.

This week we got a crash course in tuberculosis. We all participated in an interactive activity that opened our eyes to how difficult life is for TB patients. We learned about the different types of TB (including multidrug-resistant TB), the amount of medication a TB patient has to take daily (it’s a LOT), and the costs that a family must deal with when they are dealing with TB. A big thanks to our great ghU team for helping us gain a better understanding of how TB can affect people’s lives.
