First Nations: get tested for TB!
Transcript - First Nations - Get tested for TB!
Jimmy is at the clinic, with TB posters behind him, coughing. A nurse comes to great him.
Nurse - 'Hey, Skinny Jimmy. What's up?'
Jimmy - 'Not much. Just hangin'
Medium close of Jimmy and the Nurse. The Nurse has her arm on his shoulder.
Nurse - 'What's up with that cough? How long have you had it?'
Jimmy looking at this reflection in a trophy case, admiring his thin moustache.
Jimmy - 'I dunno. Since I started growing my 'stache, I think'.
The nurse is laughing at Jimmy.
Nurse - 'Well, how long has that been? A year?'
Jimmy - 'Nice burn. Like, three weeks or something.'
Nurse is serious, explaining what needs to get done.
Nurse - 'Three weeks coughing! You should get tested for TB. You need a chest x-ray and to cough up some phlegm for the lab.'
