Title XV by Dr. Mel Carr

Title XV by Dr. Mel Carr

I soon realized that I was there to provide health care to individuals who just happen to be incarcerated. I wasn’t there to judge them or punish them.

Should society be more concerned with people behind bars…or people sitting behind desks?

“Title XV” tells Dr. Mel Carr's story. In his book, Carr discusses the uniqueness of functioning as a health care professional in a detention center while working under harsh conditions and fighting through bureaucratic red tape.

“There was a general sentiment among the frontline staff that criminals don’t deserve proper health care,” said Carr. “I soon realized that I was there to provide health care to individuals who just happen to be incarcerated. I wasn’t there to judge them or punish them.”

In his book, Carr examines the health care field and reveals the flawed system that health care professionals are forced to work within on a daily basis.

“My book is an acknowledgement to those who accepted their situation and continued to provide care to those in need,” said Carr. “We often mistreat those working in this capacity. But in the end, their commitment to do great work benefits society.”
