When Dr. Anne Brooks finished her medical training at the age of 40, she had already been a Catholic nun for most of her life. She began her career in the small town of Tutwiler (population 1,364, average per capita income $7,177) in the Mississippi Delta, where she re-opened a shuttered medical clinic that now treats the "whole person" on a shoestring budget.
