Course Title: "School to Prison" to "School Again:" Preparing a New Workforce to Address Health Disparities

Presenter:

Robert Fullilove, EdD
Professor of Sociomedical Sciences
Associate Dean, Community and Minority Affairs
Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health

Presentation Date: January 5th, 2016                                         

Description:

Mass incarceration is one of the leading contributors of health disparities, with a disproportionately large percentage of African American and Latino men experiencing incarceration during their lifetime.  Having ever served time makes finding a job, securing housing, and utilizing health care services significantly more difficult, if not impossible.  While the United States prison system is meant to “rehabilitate” inmates, many who are released have no education, no job, and no home, and are forced to resort to criminal activities, leading to high recidivism rates.  This webinar raises the importance of educational programs for inmates as an effective tool for improving outcomes after release and reducing recidivism. Dr. Fullilove discusses his experience with the Bard Prison Initiative and his vision for a public health prison education system that would educate and recruit inmates as community public health workers striving to improve health and reduce disparities within their own neighborhoods after their release.

By the end of the Webinar, participants should be able to answer the following questions:

  • Why do learners and content experts (faculty) still resist online learning?
  • What are the important proactive steps an organization can take to combat resistance before the start of an online learning course (or program)?
  • What are some practical and impractical solutions to combat resistance?
