Texas Video, "If Id known..."
In a joint project by the Texas Department of Health
and the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, a video
has been produced that tells the story of the transport of an
inmate with infectious TB. In "If Id known...,"
two actors who portray a correctional officer and an inmate tell
of the arrest, incarceration, and release through deportation
of a person with symptoms of TB. The video covers TB facts and
addresses steps that transportation officers can take to protect
themselves and other noninfected inmates from TB. The video runs
8 minutes 30 seconds and is available through the Texas Department
of Health at a cost of $7.00. Please contact Ray Silva at (512)
458-7447 or firstname.lastname@example.org
for additional information.
