TB Grant For UT Health Center

Treatment for tuberculosis in East Texas just got a huge boost. Today, UT Health Center was awarded $7.5 million dollars for a new tuberculosis treatment program.

The 5 year grant will increase UT's capacity to prevent and control TB locally and in 13 other states, by providing experts in TB treatment to doctors across the region.

It's estimated nearly 15 million Americans have TB, or are likely to become infected.
