TB Testing

Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by germs that are spread from person to person through the air. TB usually affects the lungs, but it can also affect other parts of the body, such as the brain, the kidneys, or the spine. People who are working or training in areas that have a higher risk of spreading TB or contracting TB must be periodically tested or evaluated. 

SCC Health Services provides TB testing for current Los Rios students and employees only. Call Health Services for an appointment.
