Young reporters team up with local news on public health

This year's ThreeSixty Journalism campers are telling stories about inequities in public health in their communities.

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Some young reporters in the Twin Cities have teamed up with local news stations to tell stories about their community.

The project is led by ThreeSixty Journalism, a nonprofit out of the University of St. Thomas that helps diverse Minnesota youth learn the skills of multimedia storytelling.

For this year's ThreeSixty five-day summer camp, they partnered with the Center for Prevention to focus on stories addressing inequality in public health. Eight young people from diverse communities across the state participated.

KARE 11 reporter Lindsey Seavert and photojournalist Carly Danek teamed up with Isabel Saavedra Weis to tell the story of Livio Health, which serves as a "rolling doctor's office" that provides house calls to people in need.

Former KARE 11 reporter and University of St. Thomas professor Greg Vandegrift worked with Heaven Aschalew. They focused on how NorthPoint Health & Wellness is working to make healthy food available to North Minneapolis.
