Nov 15, 2020, 01:15 PM

This morning we'll learn how one mom's agonizing journey to diagnose Lyme Disease in her teenage daughter has grown into one of the region's newest nonprofits - Partner In Lyme - and how you can help the cause at their first virtual fundraiser in early January.

Then we'll encore a couple of segments from the summer starting with the CT Center for Economic Analysis. We'll hear some sobering stats about jobs and household income growth, how they are being impacted by the COVID pandemic, and how legalized cannabis could go far toward propelling Connecticut out of the sorry economic state we find ourselves in right now.

And we'll close replaying a conversation with the new Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer at the University of New Haven - Dr Lorenzo Boyd discussing police practices, movements to defund police agencies and identify the all important crossover point where racial justice comes into play.
