Valley Edition - June 21, 2019 - Childcare, Climate Change, Fresno State Nursing, Boyden Cavern

On this week’s Valley Edition:  Why is it so difficult to find childcare in the Valley? One university looks to high school students as part of the solution.

Sometimes it’s hard to find good healthcare too, especially if you’re living in a rural area. We look at one local hospital’s efforts to increase rural access to doctors. We also talk about what it means that Fresno State’s nursing master’s program just lost its accreditation. And we catch up with three Valley teenagers lobbying their representatives in Washington, D.C. for climate change reform.

Later we talk to two local filmmakers whose short films “Red Watch” and "The Blessing and the Curse" have been reaping awards. And for the Weekend, we take you to the Sierra Nevada inside Boyden Cavern.

Listen to those stories and more on the podcast above.
