7/2/2018: Opioid Investigation; Bicycling Rabbi; Summer Jazz Series

Jul 2, 2018

Monday on First Coast Connect we spoke with Dr. Raymond Pomm about the opioid and heroin epidemics and a report from the Palm Beach Post that asserts the slow approach by Florida lawmakers to passing legislation to combat the problem helped lead to an increase in the epidemic (01:14).

We talked to Rabbi Nochim Kurinsky who suffered a heart attack last year at only 36-years-old. He’s bicycling across Florida’s east coast to raise awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle (30:05).           

WJCT Program and Music Director David Luckin told us about this summer’s jazz series on Electro Lounge on 89.9 F.M. (46:00)
