Wedday on Lake Effect:

How an innovative program underway at the 16th Street Community Health Centers in Milwaukee works to help Latinos with substance abuse problems in a culturally sensitive way. Then, a new report looks at the impact of foreclosures here during the great recession had on voter turnout. And Rebecca Makkai’s latest novel is set in the Midwest at the height of the AIDS epidemic. But one of the messages she hopes comes out of it is that the epidemic has never gone away.
