About KUNM's PHNM Project: We cover the politicians, the policies, and the agencies responsible for sustaining public health. To full report on public health, we will give voice to those who are voiceless in the media: people and practitioners; advocates and analysts; researchers and activists; and people hoping to build a better way of life. 

Through our work, citizens are engaged, government is made more accountable, and the profile of poverty and public health is elevated by expanded public discourse and civic engagement.
