In advance of the first-ever, United Nations High-Level Meeting on Tuberculosis (TB), on September 26, 2018 the Office of Global Public Health Education and Training at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, Toronto Public Health and the Greater Toronto Area volunteers of RESULTS Canada are pleased to present a free talk and screening of The Lucky Specials, a South African feature-length film that poignantly sheds light on the devastating impact of TB infection. Mandla (Oros Mampofu) works as a miner by day but is passionate about playing guitar and dreams of making it big in the music industry. When tragedy strikes, Mandla, his friend Nkanyiso (Sivenathi Mabuya) and the band must find strength to make their dreams a reality.

Join us on Thursday, September 13 to learn more about TB, the Canadian response and the historic UN meeting that must result in strengthened actions and increased investments if we are to end the global TB epidemic by 2030.
