    Awful, but fascinating. Well, I find public health fascinating. I know that antibiotic-resistant TB has become an increasing problem over the years.

    Years ago when I worked in food service on a military base everyone had to have a TB test every year. However, this was never required when I worked in civilian restaurants.

    Too bad for this young lady. My husband was exposed when doing his pulmonary fellowship and fails the TB screaning every time, but yet doesn't have active TB...he's one of the lucky ones.

    Yeah, it's a nasty, nasty disease.
