Wisconsin has fewer than 50 people certified as sexual assault nurse examiners by the International Association of Forensic Nurses. We talk with the creators of a new training program at UW-Milwaukee about efforts to address shortages and burnout of forensic nurses.

Wisconsin uses early warning systems in schools to predict students at risk of not graduating. A recent study from University of California, Berkeley shows the algorithms may be accurate but are ineffective. We hear from two authors of the report on how machine learning can be improved to help struggling students.
