The Metropolitan State University of Denver faculty brain trust reaches almost every corner of the academic spectrum, and we are always proud to see Roadrunners sharing their knowledge. Each month, the Early Bird highlights a few faculty members who have served as subject-matter experts on timely news topics – providing dynamic perspectives on critical issues.
Here’s a sampling from March:

Bolton also has been doing a series of Facebook live segments leading up to the station’s 9Health Fair, providing viewers with healthful eating tips as a means of reducing the impact of chronic diseases.
