Dr. Fay Boozman, (1946 – 2005), an ophthalmologist, directed the Arkansas Department of Health from 1999-2005. He served in the Arkansas Senate and ran for the United States Senate in 1998. He founded and operated a successful medical clinic in Rogers, Arkansas. Dr. Boozman was a leader in his church and community. All who knew him recognized his commitment to Jesus Christ and his desire to serve others.
Fay was a friend and supporter of the work of the Arkansas Physicians Resource Council. His sudden death as a result of a farming accident in 2005 stunned us, and broke our hearts. He is deeply missed. He was, as one of his many admirers has said, “one of the good guys.”
