Dr. Gary Yarbrough has practiced family medicine for more than 30 years and since 1994  has tended to the people in and around Parsons, KS.

The author of House Calls, Dr. Yarbrough has told us of some of the more memorable moments and patients he's encountered over the decades.  In this edition of 90-Mile View, he talks with Steve Kraske about his latest book and shares the tale of one man's misfortune in a Kentucky tobacco barn.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. Reach me at steve@kcur.org or on Twitter @stevekraske.
As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.
