Covid-19 and Incarcerated Populations

The Hennepin-University Partnership (HUP) Summer Webinar Series presents "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 the HUP 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. RSVP here.
