Transcript - Tuberculosis - Inuit - Got TB? Take all your medicine!

Grandfather is upset, laying on his couch.

Grandfather - I don't understand why someone has to watch me take my pills. I'm a grown man.

His grandson is standing before him.

Grandson - And respected too, Grandpa Nuyalia. But that's the TB protocol. A worker watches everyone take their meds.

Close up of grandfather replying.

Grandfather - And I don't like strangers coming into the house.

Grandson - Don't be grumpy grandpa. You already know Meeka. She's nice.

Reverse shot of Grandfather replying.

Grandfather - Oh yeah. Well, how often is she going to come by the house?

Grandson - Two times a week until you're treatment in 9 months.

They're in the kitchen still continuing the conversation.

Grandfather - Oh, you're kidding! Well, am I at least allowed to tease her?

Grandson - You're such a joker grandpa. Meeka will love it.

"Nine months later." Grandfather is sitting in on his couch.

Grandfather - That you, Meeka, the nurse tells me I am cured of TB. Now, there's no chance of me passing this on to anyone in the family, especially my little grandkids. I couldn't have done it without you.
