Naco Wellness Mini-documentary
We are proud to share with all of you the Naco Wellness documentary made by Erica Lang and Elizabeth Blackburn, two students at the ASU Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications on the Phoenix campus. In late November and early December 2014, Erica and Elizabeth made two day-long visits here to conduct interviews, and shoot video at the clinics, the orphanage garden, and the surrounding Naco community! The result is this wonderful and professional piece that captures the essence of our efforts!
