The Western states have seen more avalanche deaths this season than usual. Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray reports.

Avalanche Forecaster Spencer Logan is with the Colorado Avalanche Information Center.

“So we’ve had 23 fatalities so far this season, which would make this one of the worst avalanche seasons in recent history,” Logan says.

This week, students at the University of Nevada, Reno held a conference on how to make healthcare more accessible for everyone no matter their race, socioeconomic situation, gender identity, legal status, or anything else.

The school's Division of Health Sciences brought in Deon Haywood for that conversation. She runs a nonprofit in New Orleans that's been helping under-served populations for almost three decades. While in Reno, she caught up with our News Director Michelle Billman.
