The phosphate industry contributes a great deal to Florida's economy, but at what cost?

In this preview, Florida Matters host Robin Sussingham talks about some innovations in phosphate technology with Tip Fowler, C.E.O. of JDC Phosphate

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.
