Josie Huang is an Immigration and Emerging Communities Reporter for KPCC. Prior to that, she produced and reported for the station's Take Two show.

Assignments have taken her to Central America’s largest dump, a coastal Mississippi town recovering from Hurricane Katrina and the US-Canada border, which American seniors were crossing to buy cheaper prescription drugs.
