The man who has headed the Land Institute since its establishment in 1976 has announced plans to step down from his leadership position next summer. Heartland Health Monitor's Bryan Thompson has details.


Heartland Health Monitor is a unique reporting collaboration focused on health issues and their impact in Missouri and Kansas. The partners —— KCUR Public Radio, KCPT Public Television, KHI News Service and Kansas Public Radio —— strive to bring listeners and readers timely, accurate and comprehensive coverage of a topic that leaves no one untouched.

Bryan Thompson has been KPR's Health Reporter since 2000. He's a lifelong Kansan, and a graduate of Wichita State University. He's been involved in radio news longer than he'd care to admit, serving as news director at stations in El Dorado, Liberal, and Salina before joining KPR. He and his wife, Cindy, are the parents of six outstanding children--one of whom now looks down on them from above. In his spare time, Bryan enjoys music and sports.
