TB patient released from jail updates me on progress

Armando Rodriguez, who was jailed after refusing treatment for the highly contagiuos  tuberculosis disease,  called me to update me on his progress.

Rodriguez refused treatment because he had been drinking and doing meth that weekend. “I didn’t want to hurt my liver,” he had said.

Rodriguez is in a drug and alcohol treatment program at New Directions, where he continues to also be treated for TB.

He responded to news coverage about his case, and said the newspaper “defamated all my character.”

So, he wants people to know he is doing better at New Directions.

Here is the last story we wrote, here is the first story.
