Lessons/suggestions We passed out fliers to university students, faculty, and staff containing information about TB (obtained from StopTB Partnership website, www.stoptb.org) and the date our chapter would be collecting donations a few days prior to World TB day. On World TB day, our chapter setup a table with more info about TB, and a place to give a donation. We found it to be more effective to have at least 2 AMSA members at the donation table thoughtout the day helping to raise both awareness and funds.
