Health Connections

What does it look like when a community is healthy? There’s more to it than eating fruits and vegetables and exercising. Community health is measured in high school graduation rates, economic…

Dear Member,
   We told you last month about KRCB’s focus this year on health, on becoming healthier as a community and as individuals. And about how KRCB staff is putting our money where our mouth is and doing some walking together, some yoga together, and trying to laugh together at the occasional staff brown bag lunch.
   This month you’ll begin to see programming online and on television and radio that highlights health issues. For example, beginning on March 12, KRCB Television will be bringing back Healing Quest, the only national series focused on integrative health. More of our KRCB-FM North Bay Report programs will focus on local developments in the health and health care systems. Our News Director, Bruce Robinson has been invited to be a part of The Association of Health Care Journalist national conference, a very nice compliment indeed.
   And, we’ll be reaching out to local partners to work on exercise, especially focusing on kids, the obesity epidemic, and diabetes. Hand in hand will be a focus on healthy eating, our local farm community, and sustainable farming practices, jumping off from our decades-long commitment to great local foods on Michele Jordan’s Mouthful.
   Join us in exploring health care, health policy, and creating a healthier North Bay community.
   Here’s to your health!
