Summer Webinar Series: Covid-19 and Incarcerated Populations

People in jails and prisons are particularly vulnerable to an infectious disease outbreak given their inherently close quarters, high rates of pre-existing conditions, and limited access to health care. Additionally, they often have limited access to public health information. Join us for a discussion with Professor Shlafer and graduate students/alumni from the School of Public Health and Medical School as they share about their collaboration with Hennepin County to quickly develop accessible COVID-19 educational materials tailored to incarcerated communities in Hennepin County as well as both national and local responses to COVID-19 in jails and prisons.
