The Tuberculosis (TB) Program has the ultimate responsibility for ensuring appropriate TB management in the district.  It primarily provides TB surveillance, which includes case finding, case reporting, case management and contact investigations using the principals of epidemiology.  It also ensures that active TB cases and clients with Latent TB Infection (LTBI) are treated and monitored medically.  The Program also provides Directly Observed Therapy (DOT) , which is the standard of care in Georgia for TB patients to ensure completion of therapy.  DOT entails the direct observation of patient’s self-administering TB medications.  All of these activities are crucial to reaching the goal of TB prevention and control in Cobb and Douglas Counties. The Tuberculosis clinic at Cobb & Douglas Public Health offers the following services:

  • QuantiFeron (QFT)
  • Tuberculin Skin Test (TST)
  • Chest X-rays
  • X-ray interpretation
