It was during those unusual predicaments and surrealistic situations while he was working in a correctional medical center that led Dr. Mel Carr to write “Title XV,” (published by Xlibris) his story about how he aspires for higher achievement and recognition but finds reality a harsh place.

This book describes the struggles and triumphs of Dr. Carr as he embarks on a career delivering healthcare in a jail system inundated with bureaucracies that leads to a difficult environment in which to deliver healthcare. It is with guidance and alliances that he finds his calling and purpose in this disorder.

“Most people have an idea of life different than reality, some are lucky enough to never have to confront the actual reality” says Dr. Carr. “I envisioned myself as a doctor practicing and seeing patients in the hospital like I did during my medical training. But when I got out into the world, I found things different that I have imagined. This is an interesting story for readers to see my transformation and survival in the chaotic world I toiled.”

“Title XV” reflects how difficult it is to give healthcare in detention centers and that it takes an extraordinary effort to give good healthcare particularly for a facility whose primary focus is security.
