Under the Microscope: October 20, 2011

Mariah Dreisinger is one of the student directors at MedZou

Hosted by Kyle Deas.

Chronic medical conditions are a huge problem for the homeless, unemployed, or uninsured. In an effort to address this problem, a group of University of Missouri medical students founded MedZou, a student staffed and managed medical clinic that provides free medical care to the uninsured. Though the clinic is a little ad-hoc – it sees patients in a donated meeting area a few nights a month – it provides the students with valuable practice and the patients with potentially life-changing care. KBIA’s Jessica Pupovac has this story.

How St. Louis’s literary past is coming to life in the Central West End

Tennessee Williams is one of two writers already represented at the corner of Euclid and McPherson avenues in the Central West End.

The history of St. Louis’s Central West End is steeped in literature. The area is tied to four of America’s most famous writers: T. S. Eliot, Tennessee Williams, Kate Chopin and William S. Burroughs. But until recently, the neighborhood had no official tributes to the literary greats.

Reporter's Notebook: Running in Joplin

Relaxing after a long, slow day of running. The race starts in Commerce, Ok., and finishes in Joplin.
