Social Justice Behind and Beyond the Bars: Criminal Justice, Health, and Academic Medicine

Posted by on April 20th, 2018 Posted in: Minority Health Concerns


The Association of American Medical Colleges’ Health Equity Research and Policy team released the Social Justice Behind and Beyond the Bars: Criminal Justice Health and Academic Medicine toolkit and video series to highlight the unique needs and inequities faced by the currently and formerly incarcerated and their families, and what Academic Medicine – across its research, education, clinical and diversity and inclusion missions – is and could be doing to improve the health and well-being for this community.  The toolkit features resources, discussion questions, and 5 videos which explore how being currently incarcerated, formerly incarcerated, or having an incarcerated family member affects one’s health and well-being.
