Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

 

  

  • Klamath County is one of four communities in the country to receive the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s “Culture of Health” prize for efforts to improve public health. We talk with Jennifer Little, co-chair of the Healthy Klamath Initiative, who is in Princeton, New Jersey, where the award ceremony takes place.

 

  

  • Fifty years ago, a program called Project 75 brought 75 African-American students to the University of Oregon. Before Project 75, UO only had a handful of African-American students. We talk with Carla Gary, one of the Project 75 students who later went on to work for the University of Oregon.

 

  

  • This week, we have one-on-one interviews with each of the three major party candidates for Oregon governor to hear how each of them would approach the major issues facing Oregon right now. Today, we hear from Independent Party candidate Patrick Starnes.
