Youth Council Collaborates with Health Department to Produce Video
The San Carlos Apache Youth Council (SCAYC) teamed up with the Tribal Health Department on the San Carlos Apache Reservation to issue a warning about Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Three people on the reservation have died in the past 14 months due to this bacterial disease, which is spread through the bite of an infected tick. Two members of the SCAYC narrate the two-minute video, which educates tribal residents about the disease and how to take preventive measures. Way to go San Carlos Apache Youth Council!
