Free event for locals to mark

Locals are invited to enjoy a series of music events taking place in the heart of the city to mark this year’s World Tuberculosis (TB) Day on Sunday 24 March.

With more than 500 active cases diagnosed in Birmingham in the last year alone; the free welcome to Birmingham project event supported by Heartlands Hospital, the LINK TB action group and Health Protection Agency (HPA), will raise awareness of TB and the importance of getting potential symptoms checked out as soon as possible. These symptoms include having a cough for longer than three weeks, fever, night sweats, loss of appetite and weight loss.

The event, which takes place on Sunday 24 March from 12-4pm at Victoria Square, will include a musical extravaganza of African and Asian community bands whilst medics will be on hand from the Hospital to answer questions and provide information and advice about TB.
