Weekend Connections: Week of January 20

Jan 24, 2020

Weekend Connections is a collection of some of the most noteworthy moments from the week on Connections with Evan Dawson. This episode includes conversations about:

  • How so-called rust-belt cities like Rochester can use their histories to fuel revitalization;
  • The state of early intervention services in Monroe County, and how they benefit families;
  • The value of respite programs for caregivers and people with disabilities.

Several of these stories are reported from WXXI’s Inclusion Desk. This edition of Weekend Connections was produced by Connections intern, Emmarae Stein.

Evan Dawson talks about what matters to you on Connections, every weekday from noon-2 p.m. You can listen to the program on WXXI-AM 1370 and WRUR-FM 88.5 in Rochester, WEOS 89.5 FM in Geneva, and online. Be part of the program with questions or comments by phone at 1-844-295-TALK (8255), emailFacebook, or Twitter.
