Women in the Criminal Justice System Through a Public Health Lens

September 29, 2017
10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
The Gargoyle, Danforth Campus

This symposium will use a public health lens to examine the factors that drive women into the criminal justice system, and then focus on various treatment approaches to addressing these factors.

Speakers will include:

  • Carrie Pettus-Davis, Assistant Professor, Brown School at Washington University
  • Kim Gardner, Circuit Attorney for the City of St. Louis
  • Heidi Miller, MD, Family Care Health Centers

Two panels, consisting of service providers, formerly incarcerated women, and academics, will first examine public health implications of women entering the criminal justice system and then discuss the collaborations and possible community responses vital for reentry.

Location:
The Gargoyle in Mallinckrodt on Washington University Danforth Campus.

There are limited seats and registration is necessary.
