A new state health department program is introducing farmers markets to Minnesota's Ojibwe Indian Reservations. The goal is to provide better access to fresh fruits and vegetables. It's a way to tackle some of the big health challenges in Indian communities, including high rates of diabetes and obesity.
MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Minnesota Public Radio News reporter Tom Robertson about that and other news from northern Minnesota. He spoke from our Bemidji bureau.
