conditions in their early stages,
when treatment and recovery
are easiest and fastest.
The ultimate goal of the sur
vey is, of course, to wipe out
TD completely,” Dr. Piszczek
continued, “and it is only by
early discovery and proper care
that we can stop the spread of
this infectious disease, and
thereby, make our community
a safer place to live.”
X-raying takes less than a
minute and is done through the
