Tutwiler Mississippi in Tallahatchie County has a population of around 3500 people, many lacking health insurance and living below the poverty line. Sister (and Doctor) Anne Brooks started the Tutwiler Clinic to serve the medical needs of people whose inability to pay often led them to ignore pressing medical conditions. For over thirty-five years she provided front-line access to medical care to this marginalized and underserved population. These photographs reflect a day in the clinic as Dr. Brooks treats patients ranging in age from birth to the elderly, caring for each of them with dignity and respect.
