UTSA and KLRN host panel on foster care issues

(June 7, 2005)--KLRN-TV and the UTSA Department of Social Work will host a program on the foster care system, "Aging Out: What's Next?," from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Durango Building Southwest Room (1.124) at the UTSA Downtown Campus. The program is free and open to the public.
