    West Elk Word: Health & Human Services - Joni Reynolds

    Joni Reynolds, director of Health and Human Services for Gunnison and Hindsdale Counties, joins us for a two-part discussion on poverty in our valley.

    In part one, we explore the struggles many face in a seasonal, transient service economy. Joni shares her background as well, and her delight in reconnecting with the reasons she chose her profession in the first place, now that she's moved to her "heart home."


    In part two of this conversation, we discuss topics including SNAP, immunizations, hard times, mental health, and more.
