Patients and staff members alike appreciate Dr. Stubbins' easygoing manner
Dr. Bob Stubbins

Bob Stubbins found that the secret to his good health and positive outlook was a commitment to a healthy diet and plenty of exercise. He realized at age 50 that if he wanted to keep moving at the steady pace that marked his career as a doctor in a rural Canadian province, he'd have to get moving - literally. Now at 85, he's bicycling regularly, volunteering his time at a free medical clinic in Clearwater and spreading the word about how he's managed to 'live the good life.' Producer Larry Elliston introduces us to Dr. Stubbins in this episode of Florida Stories.
