The panelists will include Dr. Arnold Grossman, Professor of Applied Psychology at New York University; Dr. Mark Hatzenbuehler, Assistant Professor of Sociomedical Sciences at the Mailman school of Public Health at Columbia University; Darnell Moore, Writer and Activist; Jessica Hawkins, Coordinator, CIVIL, NIH and Erin Reiney, Director of the Injury and Violence Prevention Programs at HRSA.  Dr. Lawrence Tabak, Deputy Director, NIH will provide welcoming remarks and Debra Chew, Director, OEODM will provide opening and closing remarks.

In 2014, an estimated 22-30% of people newly eligible for Medicaid will have had contact with local criminal justice systems. Creating new levels of community engagement will be vital to community-based primary care and behavioral health providers, given the complex healthcare needs of individuals transiting out of criminal justice systems. Expanded access to healthcare brings new opportunities and showcases the need for community partnerships with local criminal justice systems.

Learn why a public health approach will address this community need, and what providers need to bridge the integration of primary, behavioral health, and criminal justice. Examine case studies, explore research-based practices, and gain insight into how these systems can work toward improved care coordination together.
