FS for CS - When The Public Helped Fight Tuberculosis
This past weekend, there were lots of public tributes for Ol' Blue Eyes, as Frank Sinatra would have been 100 years old. Given the season and limited public health funding for tuberculosis research and programs, I wanted us to remember a time when the public was directly involved in an infectious disease (i.e. TB) fight. The Christmas Seals were first issued in 1907 to fight tuberculosis, but are now used more broadly to fund respiratory disease research. Maybe it's time to bring back campaigns to fight underfunded infectious disease research programs? MDRO Seals? Happy Christmas everyone.
