Authors:

Abstract:

International students who are from high to moderate risk countries for tuberculosis often enroll at universities in the United States. These students are at risk of introducing tuberculosis, an airborne infection, into classrooms or dormitories and to the larger community. Screening for tuberculosis in this population requires close cooperation between the educational institution and the local health departments. This article demonstrates that reducing barriers to the evaluation and treatment can improve the rates of completed assessments and compliance with the treatment of LTBI in a college campus. This requires a collaborative working relationship with the college leadership and healthcare team.
