Beth Wilson
01:20:17
Is there a list of the heads of state who are coming to the UN HLM on TB? Particularly interested in the President of Zambia.
Betsy's iPad
01:21:43
will Nicki email Haley be present to represent the us, after all isn’t this a national security issue?
Contra Costa
01:22:12
Is all the money from 1017 spent/allocated?
Susan
01:22:54
What do we need a dilogue on besides new treatments?
Cynthia Tschampl
01:23:04
Do we need to defeat the next big tax cut package in order to have a hope of a large GFATM pledge?
Beth Wilson
01:23:39
Is there a specific goal of funds raised at the next Global Fund Pledging Conference? (Assume US share would be 1/3)
Craig Roshaven
01:23:45
Could we eliminate TB as we have smallpox?
John Fawcett
01:23:48
Hi Beth - the indication from our Zambian partners is that President Lungu IS planning on attending the HLM.
Lynne
01:23:52
Is there a way we can create/get urgent updates or action-reports about U.S. cases of MDR and XDR TB, including the info on what Congressional districts, so we can more-immediately bring it to Senators and Reps?
williedickerson
01:24:22
Will there be news releases weekly to for us to encourage our newspapers to cover this?
williedickerson
01:24:33
me is Willie

Dickerson
Ken Patterson
01:25:01
Great questions, folks!
John Fawcett
01:25:10
Willie - YES! We will share on the listserv, etc. Also coming up this month is the release of new WHO TB data, which will be another hook.
John Fawcett
01:25:15
later in the call we'll brainstorm some hooks
williedickerson
01:25:44
thanks
Cynthia Tschampl
01:26:14
Lynne - getting to know your state TB officer (or TB controller) can help get early numbers for your state/county.
Ken Patterson
01:26:30
Great idea, Cynthia
Cynthia Tschampl
01:26:33
Local hook for MA, for example: we had a 10.5% increase in TB in 2017.

Hi, could you clarify when the pledging conference in France is and the difference between that and the technical meeting in India?

Steve Brumbaugh
01:29:02
Would you be able to speak a bit more to the role of the private sector in terms of ending TB in relation to governments/heads of state?

Puppy?

01:34:02
Thank you anyway
Lisa
01:34:11
What a fantastic attempt, though!
John Fawcett

Thanks, John!
Lisa
01:45:31
Once you've brainstormed, consider sharing a few of your hooks here in the chat window!
Anne
01:46:02
immigration issues / refugee camps
Ken Patterson
01:46:41
Definitely, though we need to be a bit careful not to put blame for TB on immigrants.
Lynne
01:46:47
Nearby MoCs have signed the letter on TB, but other local Reps have not…..
williedickerson
01:46:50
recent increases in another airborne disease: measles

Lisa
01:47:16
I used the hook of the Emirates flight being quarantined/met by ambulances at JFK due to illness on the plane and how frightening public health issues can be if we don't anticipate them, etc.
Ken Patterson
01:47:28
yes, other sicknesses and health issues, other MOCs who could be taking action.
Lynne
01:48:02
Senator cares about National Security or the Justice Committee but TB is also and issue of security and of justice for those who can’t access treatment…
Lori Saltveit
01:48:13
The California Dept. of Public Health published this fact sheet: https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/CDPH%20Document%20Library/TBCB-TB-Fact-Sheet-2017.pdf. Could be helpful for including statistics in your LTE. Other states probably have the same.
Ken Patterson
01:48:24
excellent
Michelle Cash
01:49:01
That's helpful, Lori! Thanks.
Gig Harbor/So. Kitsap
01:49:09
if you have a family member in Health Care industry (Nurses, Doctors, even teachers) are potentially exposed to TB.
Sidney
01:49:15
Many of the people in Dina Titus’s (D-NV District 1) District do not know that she is in the FA committee. We can use this to educate the people in her district, which includes a big Latinx population. So we will be sending a LTE to our English paper and one to our Spanish paper.
Contra Costa
01:50:23
LTE thanking local MoC for signing and holding accountable those who did not.
Cynthia Tschampl
01:50:31
MA Governor is cutting public health funding in the face of increasing infectious diseases...
Lori Saltveit
01:51:31
Super good idea Sidney to try getting published to newspapers who print in Spanish.
John Fawcett
01:52:56
for you local history buffs/public health nerds: pretty much every community in the country had a TB sanitorium at one point. This web site documents them: http://www.asylumprojects.org/
Lori Saltveit
01:53:27
Is there someone on the call right now who can translate the English version of the media action into Spanish?
Lynne
01:53:53
Oh… and you could host a local meeting at your home or in your group with a local doctor… and use that as a hook
Cynthia Tschampl
01:55:24
I could do the Spanish translation…where should I send it?
Lynne
01:56:37
One great way to build your action network is to throw a fund-raising party!!!
Betsy's iPad
01:57:16
we love you Beth
Lori Saltveit
01:57:18
Cynthia — Awesome. Probably ask Ken or Colin.
Ken Patterson
01:57:19
like that idea
Lynne
01:57:59
A quality life-style for every citizen!!!

Congrats, Qiana! Thanks, Beth!
Elaine Wells

How do you report meetings with Congressional CANDIDATES?
Lisa
02:03:40
Yes - you can do so in our tracker, as it's different than a lobby report. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSefjMDlH2zDi7sgMk1qehTNEeqQ4JWp_RD8STj_GM0QvqB5ww/viewform
John Fawcett
02:04:12
