Corey Dion Lewis improves health equity with information and confidence

The pandemic tanked the work of Des Moines health coach Corey Dion Lewis. In May 2020, that adversity helped Lewis launch "The Healthy Project Podcast." Lewis joins Ben Kieffer to discuss the origin story of the podcast and the variety of health issues that Lewis covers on the show, including health equity, diversity and literacy in conversations with top healthcare professionals.

Before that, IPR’s Kendall Crawford discusses a proposed carbon pipeline that would run through Iowa and investigative reporter Clark Kauffman of Iowa Capital Dispatch talks about how many employees in three state-run facilities have refused COVID-19 vaccines.
