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.
Additionally, there are three pre-conferences taking place on March 31-April 1 including the Justice Community Opioid Intervention Network (JCOIN) Research Education program funded by NIDA, the National Hepatitis Corrections Network (NHCN) meeting, and the Aging in Criminal Justice Research Network (ARCH), an R24 funded by NIA. Finally, the Center for AIDS Research Justice Substance Use HIV/AIDS Involved Populations (CFAR J-SHIP) will have a track in the conference both days and is funded by NIAAA.
In the past, this conference has generally drawn 250-275 participants. We are expecting that will swell to 350 this year with the additional pre-conferences. This will be a can't miss event!
