Our episode covers a wide span of topics, including why prevention and implementation work are difficult, but critical; the changes that happen when there’s a political transition, and much more.

Incarceration and COVID-19

More than 2.2. million people are incarcerated in the U.S.; this is more people than in any other country and over half of these individuals are incarcerated for non-violent offenses. Incarcerated populations, correctional staff, and their families are at an especially increased risk to become infected with COVID-19, as the prison environment does not lend itself to be protective against illness.
