A King County, Wash., story-telling project that allows those affected by TB to share their personal experiences with the disease hopes to raise awareness about TB’s impact, both globally and locally. TB Voices Project for Snohomish and King County requests people of all ages to share their perspectives on how TB has affected their lives. The project documents stories with photographs, video, voice recordings, and/or participants’ written stories and will be shared at community education events as well as with health providers and decision-makers. The project is part of TB Photovoice, which has worked around the world since 2006 to give voice to those impacted by TB so they and their communities can improve their overall health. A 2014 King County TB Voices exhibit will feature stories from local residents as well as from TB projects in Texas, Mexico, Pakistan, and South Africa. The current project will run through October 2013 and is still accepting submissions from additional people willing to share their viewpoints. For more information or to schedule an interview, contact Project Director Teresa Rugg at (425) 345–3958, or tbphotovoice@frontier.com.
