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. As the academic home for its members, ACCJH advances health research, training and care for justice involved populations
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.
According to the latest figures from the US Bureau of Justice Statistics, our correctional population is comprised of about 6.6 million people.
The Academic Consortium on Criminal Justice Health is very pleased to announce the program schedule for the 13th Academic & Health Policy Conference on Correctional Health. This is going to be a landmark event! We had record submissions for presentations, posters and scholarships. Thanks to a grant from Langeloth Foundation, we will have 8 scholarship recipients from four categories: students, early career investigators, community based stakeholders and criminal justice stakeholders.
