The Wichita Falls-Wichita County Public Health District will soon have more money when it comes to fighting Tuberculosis, also known as TB.
On Tuesday the health district will receive a federal grant worth nearly $24,000 to fund Tuberculosis prevention and control in the county.
Director of Health for WFWCPHD, Lou Kreidler, said the money goes toward helping local providers with accurate testing for TB.
"The TB program is set up to provide education because what we want to do is to prevent TB in our community. If we do have a case it allows us to do testing of the individual and any of their contacts. We can go out and give education to providers about how to place and read a TB test," said Kreidler.
