Colorado Edition: The Second Year In A Row
Today on Colorado Edition, we get an update on vaccine outreach efforts for Hispanic and Latino communities in Fort Collins. We also learn what public health departments in the Mountain West are doing to address vaccine hesitancy. Plus, we discuss why a public option health insurance plan has derailed in Colorado. And, we hear how Muslims celebrated the holy month of Ramadan during a pandemic for the second year.
Today’s guests include Markian Hawryluk, senior Colorado correspondent for Kaiser Health News; Shakir Muhammad, president of the Islamic Center of Fort Collins; and Iman Jodeh, state House representative for the 41st District and spokesperson for the Colorado Muslim Society Mosque in Denver. Today’s episode includes reporting from Maggie Mullen, a reporter for Mountain West News Bureau, and Adam Rayes, KUNC’s rural and small communities reporter.
