Applying a Public Health Perspective to Improving Prison Conditions
Wednesday, March 1, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
This presentation will introduce the audience to the public health principles that have enabled the Norwegian Correctional Service to run the “world’s most humane prisons.” It will then describe the early efforts of Amend — a UCSF program that draws on public health, medical ethics, occupational health, international human rights and correctional practices to address dehumanizing conditions in U.S. prisons — to bring this approach to change California prison culture.
This event is part of the UC Center Sacramento Wednesday Speaker Series: Finding Policy Solutions at the Nexus of Homelessness, Mental Illness, and Incarceration.
