TruckBeat is an interactive health storytelling project about East Tennessee. It's a collaboration between independent lead producer Jess Mador and Matt Shafer Powell, news director at Knoxville NPR-station 91.9 FM WUOT. ­TruckBeat is part of AIR's 15-city Localore: #Finding America initiative. We take our bread truck turned mobile studio out on the road to report on community health topics in depth: addiction, obesity, mental health, access to health care – and why ZIP code may matter more to health than genetics.
