The LaSalle County Health Department TB (Tuberculosis) Program focuses on both prevention and control of tuberculosis in LaSalle County.

Tuberculosis is a disease which spreads from person to person through the air. Germs enter the air when a person with TB of the lung coughs, sneezes, laughs or sings. TB usually effects the lungs but it can also affect other parts of the body such as the brain, kidneys, or spine.
