High school seniors are starting to get their final acceptance letters - hopefully - from the colleges of their choice. While they celebrate, parents are trying to figure out how to pay for it all.

This week on Florida Matters we're talking about the high cost of college and exploring some options for families in need of assistance.

I cover health care for WUSF and the statewide journalism collaborative Health News Florida. I’m passionate about highlighting community efforts to improve the quality of care in our state and make it more accessible to all Floridians. I’m also committed to holding those in power accountable when they fail to prioritize the health needs of the people they serve.
