Incarceration: A Public Health Issue
The 2018 Health Disparities Round table is an annual event offered by the Midwest Center for Life Long Learning in Public Health (MCLPH) and was video taped on April 6, 2018.
Currently 2.3 million adults and 48,000 youth incarcerated in the US. A disproportionate share of those individuals are African Americans, Latinos, and other ethnic minority groups. Our keynote speakers will identify strategies to prevent individuals from entering the juvenile and criminal justice systems and examine what can be done to reduce the impact of incarceration on the health of family members.
