Please Allow 88 Year-Old, Dr. Carrol Frazier Landrum, to keep his Mississippi medical license 

author: Jennifer "Jenny" Speir Wilson, Kathy Speir Martin
target: Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure

A. G.,

The state of Mississippi wants to stop one of the few doctors in a poor, rural town from providing care to his patients, simply because he uses his car for an office! Sign my petition to make sure Dr. Landrum can keep caring for the health of his poor patients.

Growing up, my family was always proud of my second cousin, Dr. Carroll Frazier Landrum. As a child, I spent many summers with his family. I vividly recall what a genuinely caring soul he had, and those summers spent with his family are my most fond and cherished memories from my childhood. In the evenings I would see him drive up, go into his house with his briefcase in tow; then further dedicating his life to the care of his elderly mother and family.

One of the only doctors in the rural, poor town of Edwards, MS, Cousin Frazier was doing important work for folks with few healthcare options. When gun violence outside his clinic's front door forced him to lock up for good, his patients had nowhere else to go, and pleaded with him to continue caring for them. So, he started working from his car in order to continue in his dedication of providing health care to his needy patients.

But now the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure is trying to stop him! No one has complained about the care they have received, but because of his unconventional practice, the board has requested he surrender his medical license. This World War II veteran who has always sought to serve his country and his fellow man is now being forced to defend his most modest and humble work.

Dr. Landrum will have to appear before a hearing of the Mississippi State Board soon, so I started this petition to show the state what Dr. Landrum means to the community, and how important it is that he be allowed to continue to care for his patients.

Sign my petition and tell Mississippi: Let Dr. Landrum keep providing care for the rural poor in Edwards.


Thank you,

Agelbert NOTE: I signed with this comment: Dr. Carrol Frazier Landrum understands that health care is a VOCATION, not a business! It's time our greed poisoned country (AND BIOSPHERE POISONED TOO!) realized it as well.


Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
