State Recruits Local Ag Advisors, Fresno State Students For Pesticide Videos In Hmong

Pesticide regulations can be tough to understand, especially among communities that don’t speak English.

In this panel interview, FM89’s Kerry Klein spoke with Michael Yang, a community education specialist with the University of California Cooperative Extension and Mali Lee, a Fresno State graduate, both of whom were involved in producing the videos; as well as Chia Thao, a Ph.D. student at UC Merced studying environmental health within the Hmong farming community.
