REPORTER CONTRACTS TB. Boston Herald reporter Jules Crittenden writes today that among the things he brought home from Iraq was an asymptomatic case of tuberculosis. He writes:
My biggest concern is getting the word out to professionals now traveling to the region, thanks to our ongoing wars and occupation of highly infected areas. You need to be tested. The colleagues I've spoken to were unaware of the risk.
Sounds like something every newsroom ought to be thinking about.
