We've all had a crash course in getting and staying healthy over the last two years.

But the upper Klamath Basin got a jump on many of us, with the creation of the Healthy Klamath coalition, which brings together several organizations dedicated to improving the health of people in Klamath County.

The work of the coalition includes a community health assessment and a plan for improving overall health, plus a "real age" test recently completed.

Merritt Driscoll is the Executive Director of Healthy Klamath. She and Klamath County Public Health Director Jennifer Little visit with an update on health measures in the Basin.
