I am delighted to let you know that KRCB North Bay Public Media will be working closely with the County of Sonoma over the next several years to expand the conversation about and awareness of key factors affecting our health. (See article on page 4.) The County has recently awarded the station a grant to seed an array of programming and activities toward this end. We will be seeking the balance of funding from other sources and already have 10 local organizations and businesses that have joined the KRCB Health Connections initiative to support this work.
While this work is being generously supported by Sonoma County, it is important to note that the issues which we will be exploring and investigating pertain throughout the entire Bay Area. We will be using examples and individuals from Sonoma County, but the challenges and road to solutions will be the same in San Jose and Livermore and Marin County. So, to our members throughout the region, don’t tune out the conversation; we all need to re-think and re-focus on the real matters affecting our health.
We are proud of the confidence that the County has demonstrated in KRCB and will be working hard to merit that confidence. Stay tuned!
