Today: a conversation with Lake County Coronor Merilee Frey, after she spoke to the recent Lake County Advancement Commission meeting in Schererville about the Region's opioid epidemic. She offers the latest figures and more. We also have a related feature from Indiana Public Broadcasting's Lindsey Wright. She focuses on what regional and state leaders are hoping to find out from the Trump administration, when it announces its policy plan in the weeks ahead.
And we have another conversation for you, from the Welcome Project at Valparaiso University. The Project collects first-person stories and it pairs these with intentional conversation help forge stronger ties within and across our communities.
