Tuberculosis (TB) Program

The Tuberculosis Program monitors the Stanislaus County community for active TB disease to stop any further spread of TB disease. We support each active TB patient with individualized case management. The TB Program provides essential education to our community medical providers regarding the testing and treatment of TB.

TB Program provides:

  • Individualized case management of active TB disease cases in the community.
  • Performs detailed contact investigation to prevent the further spread of disease within the community
  • Education and resources to community providers and members focusing on community members who are most at risk
