Editor’s Note: KQED produces ouRXperience, a blog from community correspondents, to enrich coverage of health issues across California.

This week ouRXperience featured posts from three California communities:

  • Anabell Romero in Wilmington wrote about a proposed Port of LA rail yard and its possible pollution impact.
  • From San Bernardino, Bobbi Albano described problems people can have with gambling.
  • And ouRXperience welcomed our newest community correspondent, South Sacramento resident Sharon Chandler. Chandler featured profiles of people who are improving their health by line dancing.
