Healthcare Rights for Incarcerated Patients

Duke's Health Law Society and Duke Med for Social Justice are excited to invite you to a panel exploring healthcare and the right to healthcare for currently and recently incarcerated people. We will be discussing ongoing litigation related to compassionate release during the COVID-19 pandemic, access to appropriate healthcare services while incarcerated, barriers to accessing healthcare after release, and how to be a medical advocate for people experiencing incarceration. Our panelists are from Prisoner Legal Services, Centurion Health (medical contractor for jails and prisons), and the Formerly Incarcerated Transitions (FIT) Program. Sponsored by the Health Law Society. Meeting Link: Meeting ID: 945 7475 3813 (Passcode: 040978). For more information, contact Chorong Song at
