Dr. Mary Ann Ladia (Visiting Women and Minority Lecturer Series) from the University of the Philippines will present "Global TB Elimination and the Patient Care Pathway in the Phillipines:"

Tuberculosis (TB) has a long history in the Philippines, and it is a major health problem that continues to affect a large number of Filipinos today. The Philippine national TB program aims to eliminate the disease by 2035. Using quantitative and qualitative data in this brown bag presentation, Dr. Ladia presents the challenges for program managers and health providers towards ending TB while patients do not seek care, self-medicate or shift from one health provider to another.

Mary Ann J. Ladia, Ph.D., University Researcher III at the Institute of Clinical Epidemiology, University of the Philippines Manila-National Institutes of Health, has more than 30-year research experience. Dr. Ladia also teaches qualitative methods at the Department of Clinical Epidemiology of the College of Medicine at UP Manila. Dr. Ladia specialized in the anthropology of infectious diseases in the socio-cultural context at Michigan State University's Medical Anthropology Program.

This brown bag presentation is sponsored by the Department
of Social Sciences, the Pavlis Honors College, and Visiting
