"It's OK Not to be OK" ~ Love Poems for Anxious People

Monday, May 18, 2020 - West Fargo's Liberty Middle School has a podcast focusing on issues facing teens and their mental health, called "It's OK Not to be OK." It's garnered praise from North Dakota First Lady Kathryn Helgaas Burgum and recently won 2nd place in a state STEM competition. We visit with one of the hosts, Hailey Boehme and teacher advisor Holly Erickson. ~~~ While schools are closed across the country, students are missing out on more than just face-to-face time with teachers. Especially in rural areas, they could also be missing an important healthcare link: school nurses. Lee Gaines reports for Harvest Public Media.In the spirit of his popular books Love Poems for Married People and Love Poems for People with Children, John Kenney now presents Love Poems for Anxious People. It’s welcome wit and wisdom in this age of coronavirus, and he visits with our director of radio, Bill Thomas. ~~~ Sticking with poetry, we share another episode of Poetry from Studio 47 with host Patrick Hicks.
