The Center for Health Journalism awarded KRCB and KBBF, radio stations in Santa Rosa California, one of its new Impact Fund grants. In this program, KBBF News Director Edgar Avila and KRCB News Director Steve Mencher talk about the stations' collaboration to examine whether the recent annexation of the formerly unincorporated Roseland community can help improve the health of residents. The two stations have conducted street interviews to gain insight into where the community stands on many health indicators and what residents' concerns are. Read more about the project here.
