Natalie Skipper survived multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, but not before it flipped her life upside down. We weave together Natalie’s story — which took place in Nashville, Tennessee — with a global perspective on the pervasive threat posed by TB around the world.
EXPOSED is a four-part series of short films that tells the story of the deadly global epidemic of tuberculosis. The series focuses on current efforts to halt this airborne disease, which is growing more difficult to address, as well as the urgent movement to develop new tools to prevent it. By telling the stories of four inspiring individuals interspersed with expert commentary from some of the world’s top TB physicians, scientists, advocates and policymakers, EXPOSED brings viewers to the forefront of the race against tuberculosis.
