We've all heard about Utah's booming economy. We've all heard how low our unemployment rate is. Still, many Utahns remain in poverty, die with no access to health care, and all across Utah, every night, kids go to bed hungry. So begins a monthlong RadioActive focus on poverty in the Beehive State. In this edition, RadioActive host Nick Burns talks with:

  • Bill Tibbitts, Crossroads Urban Center, which will host its annual Poverty Summit Saturday, August 29, at

  • Rachel Santizo, a member of Fourth Street Clinic's Consumer Advisory Board (CAB), who was once homeless herself.

  • Phil Taylor, nurse practitioner and medical director for Fourth Street Clinic's Street Medicine Team
