2022 National TB Conference
Registration is now Open!

NTCA and CTCA leadership are pleased to announce that registration is now open for an in-person TB conference, scheduled from May 23 -26, 2022! We are fortunate that the location planned for the 2022 National TB Conference (NTC) is the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Hotel in Rancho Mirage, CA (near Palm Springs, CA and the site of our successful collaboration co-hosting the 2018 NTC).
We are excited that the location for this first in-person conference in three years is a hotel known to us and to our participants. It is a lovely location and, no doubt, we will be well cared for!
We cannot deny the many challenges, both professional and personal, experienced by our community over the last 2+ years. The TB public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been significant and is ongoing. However, we cannot lose sight of the time and progress we have lost in our efforts to eliminate TB in the United States.
 
The TB community needs to recommit our expertise and our energies to that goal, despite the distractions of COVID-19. With this in mind, the planning committee has chosen as this year’s conference theme: TB Elimination: Back in Focus. The agenda for this conference has been curated to provide TB-themed content with a refocus on our passion – public health and TB. 
We are sensitive to concerns about continued travel bans and the overall safety of in-person events. The context in which we are planning this in-person conference is dynamic and we are responding by including as many safety elements as possible. All participants will need to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination. Social distancing and mask-wearing will be required. Additional safety measures are outlined on the 2022 NTC registration website.
The planning committee has developed this agenda with cutting-edge TB content and presenters. We think the 2022 NTC agenda has something for everyone and look forward to welcoming you to Palm Springs, the 2022 NTC, and the opportunity to re-focus on TB and TB elimination strategies.
 
In partnership,
