Anh joined the KUNR news team in spring 2014. She has graduate degrees in public health from Boston University and international education from Teachers College, Columbia University. In 2015, Anh received an award from the Associated Press Television Radio Association for producing a spot news story called “Anti-Campus Carry Protestors Rally At UNR.” Her reporting for KUNR has included in-depth coverage on youth homelessness, overcrowding in the Washoe County School District and the opioid addiction epidemic.

Many voters are glad to see this election come to an end. But as Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray discovers at one polling site on Election Day, an audience thousands of miles away has found the process quite gripping.

At a polling site at Reno High School, I ran across a foreign correspondent from Sydney, Australia. Charles Miranda says Sydney's newspaper The Daily Telegraph sent a dozen reporters to the U.S. to cover the election.

In the class of 2015, more than 18 thousand graduated from medical schools across  the U.S., but only 20 were American Indian or Alaskan Native. And at the Reno-Sparks Tribal Health Center, there’s only one Native doctor. Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray explores why this lack of diversity exists.

Home means Northern Nevada for several refugee families. They’ve recently moved to the region as part of the United State’s 2017 commitment to resettle 110 thousand people from the global refugee crisis. Often times, they have endured physical and mental trauma.

The KUNR news team recently reported on the physical and mental trauma one Syrian family endured while escaping their war-torn country. In part two of this story, Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray reports that while federal benefits like Medicaid can help refugees with basic health care, their more complex medical issues can be left untreated.

This November, Washoe County voters are being asked whether or not to approve a sales tax increase to pay for school capital improvements. School officials say the money will help alleviate overcrowded classrooms.

For quite some time now, many area business leaders have been hammering the message that school overcrowding could hurt the region’s economic growth. About four hundred gathered this past spring to rally support for the measure. Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray has this report. 

A political action committee (PAC) has raised about a million dollars to support a ballot measure that would raise the sales tax in Washoe County by half-a-percent. Money from the tax hike will fund school capital projects. As Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray reports a pending lawsuit threatens to strike the measure off the ballot.
