Today we talk to Art Rivera, an information source for healthcare services and health insurance. He shares information about challenges related to providing healthcare options to residents. Challenges sometimes relate to culture, language differences, and literacy skills.

We also visit with Kristin Shea-Thiel, Reading Program Coordinator for The Children’s Initiative in San Diego. She shares with listeners the impact that senior volunteers are having on youth who struggle with reading. She uses a tutor training curriculum provided through the AARP Experience Corps.
