Broxton author Mark Elliott Miller has published a new book, Doc Miller's Prison Prognosis: An Insider's Examination of Correctional Healthcare.
Miller, a health services administrator and university educator, takes the reader inside prison and jail clinics across America to see healthcare behind bars. He shares touching and tragic stories to inspire every reader to look differently at healthcare in our country.
In his thoughtful exploration of U.S. healthcare in correctional facilities and the free world, Miller reflects, "While politicians and pundits never tire of debating universal healthcare, the reality today is the only people in America guaranteed to get all the healthcare they need at no cost are convicted criminals. Court decisions guarantee community-quality healthcare for incarcerated men and women regardless of ability to pay." He asks, "What are the costs for taxpayers and the convicts facing lives outside their control?"
Doc Miller’s Prison Prognosis: An Insider’s Examination of Correctional Healthcare is available as a paperback and an e-book. Miller is also available to speak to community organizations, healthcare groups, and professional groups on healthcare challenges in Georgia and the nation, justice and healthcare, one healthcare for all, and customized health topics of interest to organizations.
