In the Story Booth: why don't guys like ZUMBA?

The Corner Health Center

The Corner Health Center in Ypsilanti is a place adolescents and the children of adolescents can get affordable, high quality health care.  Staff and patients at the Corner are featured in this story about why more Medicaid-eligible teenagers in the state aren't getting signed up.

We also took State of Opportunity's story booth to the clinic this summer to talk to teenagers involved in a summer fitness program called "Turn the Corner." 

The stories are full of honesty, humor and a fair amount of well-deserved teenage skepticism. Listen in to Josh Cornett, Desiree Trim, and Reyannah Nelson Chambers share stories about body image, guys who like  ZUMBA, and society needing to give teens the benefit of the doubt.
