Community health workers Jerry Smart and Monya Saunders canvassing in New Haven to connect and educate community members to Transitions Clinic’s services.

Our education initiatives provide training in health equity research and community engagement and expand opportunities for hands-on experience and mentoring for people with a history of incarceration, Yale University students and medical trainees. We partner with correctional systems, the Transition Clinic Network (TCN), and institutions across Yale to offer unique educational opportunities. By doing so, our Center aims to build the leadership of individuals with a history of incarceration to lead transformation in their own communities, as well as a cadre of Yale students and trainees equipped to tackle the racial and ethnic inequities of mass incarceration through scholarship, clinical care, and policy work.

We regularly host educational webinars and seminars on the health impact of mass incarceration, which are open to the public. You can learn about upcoming webinars by enrolling in our email listserv. To view previous webinars, visit our YouTube channel.
