This is the fourth in the Justice Policy Center's Reentry Roundtable series aimed to generate national discussion about the health needs and health risks of returning prisoners and their families, and offer policymakers a critical opportunity to improve outcomes. While the focus was on prison reentry, many participants noted that those returning from jails also pose health problems to their communities and the health care system. The two-day session provided an opportunity for meeting participants to explore the places where corrections, reentry, and health perspectives intersect.
