The Bangor Anti-Tuberculosis Association: they didn't wait, they acted

The Bangor Anti-Tuberculosis Association was incorporated in June, 1909 to fight this invisible enemy.  This organization led the way in community support, resources, and care for not only this contagion but reorganized as time passed to address current community health issues and crises as they arose.  Even though they disbanded as a nonprofit corporation in 1998, funds are maintained at the Maine Community Foundation as a funding source for current and ongoing community health issues.
