JUSTice Involved Individuals Study of Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology (JUSTICE)

This longitudinal observational study of individuals released from a correctional facility is designed to understand the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors and unique modifiable mediators of CVD risk factor control in this population which is at high risk for poor cardiovascular outcomes. The central hypothesis is that there are population-specific risk factors, including psychosocial stress from carceral system policies and collateral sanctions following release, that exacerbate poor control of traditional CVD risk factors.
