LINQ at the 6th TBnet Academy in St. Petersburg

LINQ was honoured to be among the faculty of the 6th TBnet Academy, which took place in St. Petersburg, Russia, from May 13 to 16 2018.

During their 2018 Academy days, participants from Russia and other Eastern European countries were trained in different aspects of the fight against tuberculosis, ranging from prevention through diagnostics to therapy, and received coaching in a wide range of relevant soft skills, such as the drafting of a research manuscript or the preparation of research proposals.

Hosted by Professor Piotr K Yablonskii and his wonderful team at the State Research Institute of Phthisiopulmonology, the international TBnet delegation felt warmly welcomed and is excited that follow-up plannings for a TBNET postgraduate course at the Russian TB congress in November 2018 are already underway.
