"These persons are said to have - -... ••• luber . people whom we hope to meet in our current program," the nurse continued. The nurse visits the physicians in the county who advises her of any persons they know who have been in contact with a case of active tuberculosis. These individuals, plus any others the doctors recommend, are visited by the public health nurse. The doctor makes many of his recommendations on the tjasis of tuberculin skin tests which indicate • whether the person has ever had tuberculosis. The family physician advises the individual to have a chest x-ray when the mobile x-ray unit visits the been in 'contact' with culosis.
