In this episode we explore environmental & economic pressures in the region, and we learn about pre-diabetes and diabetes prevention. From the Ohio Valley Resource we learn about new communities where toxic fluorinated chemicals have been found in the water, how crashing hemp prices have some farmers worried, and about challenges faced by some rural groceries in coal communities. Then, we'll hear about prediabetes and diabetes prevention & economic development efforts in Pound, VA.
