This reports highlights a community outreach project funded by PNC Charitable Trust and managed by URC's non-profit affiliate, the Center for Human Services (CHS). The project was a targeted health education initiative to reduce TB disease among Cuban migrant works around Lancaster, PA. As an innovative practice, CHS selected migrants with previous health training (clinicians, nurses and allied health professionals) to become Community TB Outreach Volunteers in an effort to support their communities with information about TB risk, services available and treatment opportunities.
