On this episode, we chat with some college freshmen about what their experience with higher education has been during the pandemic. Some are questioning if they are getting what they pay for.
A doctor speaks with us about the latest COVID-19 numbers and what might lie ahead as colder weather approaches.
We also learn about individuals performing outreach in Chicago to prevent violence. Those stories and more on this week's Statewide.
* Patrick Smith of WBEZ reports on outreach workers in Chicago who are part of the city's effort to deal with street violence. Many of them say they have experienced burnout because of the trauma they've witnessed.
