In December 2012, we joined a youth group here organized by the Central California Regional Obesity Prevention Program that meets every Friday after school. Although Jonathan is only 14 and Uriel is 13, we’ve become regulars at county planning meetings: We want to figure out how to make Planada’s streets safe.</p> Mon, 24 Feb 2014 23:37:28 +0000 Jonathan Hernandez & Uriel Sanchez 28930 at http://kvpr.org Commentary: Planada Teens Organize For Bike, Pedestrian Safety On Valley Edition: Health & Your Zipcode; Immunization Policy; Margarita Engle http://kvpr.org/post/valley-edition-health-your-zipcode-immunization-policy-margarita-engle <p>This week on Valley Edition, we talk about a new study that links the health of Valley residents with their neighborhood. It turns out where you live can tell you a lot about your health and lifespan. We&#39;ll also learn more about efforts to change state laws about immunization policies in an effort to protect public health. We close our program with a profile of Newbery Award winning local author Margarita Engle.&nbsp;</p><p><strong>Valley Edition for March 20, 2012:</strong></p> Tue, 20 Mar 2012 21:39:48 +0000 Juanita Stevenson 1153 at http://kvpr.org
