Wednesday on Lake Effect: Milwaukee homeless outreach, Theresa Lau Brewers, 'Black Nativity,' seasonal affective disorder

Today on Lake Effect, we look at homelessness in Milwaukee and how outreach efforts have been impacted by the pandemic. Then, we hear from the first Asian American woman to work on the Brewers medical staff, about her major league baseball journey so far. Plus, the director of the play Black Nativity shares how he hopes this year’s production will help Milwaukee’s Black community. And we’ll explore seasonal affective disorder symptoms and how to treat it.
