Texas Video, "If I’d 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 I’d 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 for additional information.
