The Academic Consortium on Criminal Justice Health (ACCJH) is a member organization with a mission to advance the science and practice of health care for individuals and populations within the criminal justice system. Our vision is to be the academic home for criminal justice health researchers, educators, clinicians, scholars, and administrators.
ACCJH members benefit from the resources of an academic community that conducts breakthrough research in correctional health care, and develops and promotes a broader and more critical view of the relationships between community and inmate health care.
If you have type 1 diabetes and wind up behind bars, you’ll get the insulin injections needed to control your blood sugar.
Our nation’s correctional population is about 6.6 million including those individuals supervised by probation and/or parole agencies, according to the latest figures from the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics.
We are pleased to announce that this year's keynote speaker, for the 12th Academic Health & Policy Conference on Correctional Health, will be Dr. Christopher Jones.
