Lisa Puglisi, MD

About Me:
I am an Assistant Professor at the Yale University School of Medicine and the Director of Education for the SEICHE Center for Health and Justice. I do this work because I am passionate about working to undo the harm caused to individuals, families and entire communities by mass incarceration. I also love working in multidisciplinary teams and helping to build the careers of people directly impacted by mass incarceration.

In the clinical domain, I am a primary care physician, addiction medicine provider, and the director of Transitions Clinic Connecticut which is a statewide network of programs that provide enhanced primary care to people returning to the community after release from jail or prison. I also oversee a medical-legal partnership in my clinical practice that helps address health-harming civil legal needs. As an educator, I lead interventions to expand the knowledge and exposure of residents, fellows, medical students, psychology students, and law students, as well as professional colleagues, to the health impacts of incarceration. As a researcher, I focus on designing interventions to improve the health of people impacted by mass incarceration. I received my undergraduate degree from Tufts University and medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine and completed residency training in Internal Medicine and a chief residency at Yale New Haven Hospital.
