Summer job

2:00 PM Edit This 1 Comment »
Sounds like when I was a teen and had summer jobs like mother's helper. But no, I am working at the Children's hospital doing research in TB for a new TB test recently approved in Quebec (QFT: Quantiferon) . It's with a Public Healh PhD student and the Respiratory TB Clinic. I am amazed at how much TB there still is in North America, and I just have the kid's number let alone the adults still affected by it.
All I can say is YIKES!

It's been shown to be accurate in adults so now we need to see if it is in children as well.
