Colorado Edition: Tastes And Sounds Like Home
Today on Colorado Edition: we'll learn about a program that is using music to help people with Alzheimer's and dementia. Plus, a look at what an Equity Resolution means in Boulder. Plus, we'll get gift ideas for the foodie in your life, and we'll revisit a reporting project from earlier in the year with KUNC's Stephanie Daniel.
A lifetime of memories can disappear in an instant for those with Alzheimer's and dementia. One study, known as B Sharp, is seeing whether music can help patients and their caregivers.
KUNC’s Stacy Nick reported on the program when it first launched a few years ago, and joined us with an update.
Boulder Equity Resolution
Tuesday night, the Boulder City Council unanimously passed a resolution recommitting its members to promote racial equity. This comes after a member of the council, Mirabai Nagle, made a controversial comment regarding race at a council meeting last month.
Sam Lounsberry covers city council for The Boulder Daily Camera and joined us to explain what's going on.
