COVID-19 Behind Bars and Its Aftermath: Critical Reflections on the Pandemic and New Directions for Ethics and Policy
COVID-19 has been a profound threat to the health of incarcerated people in the United States, and has raised complex challenges to the delivery of health care behind bars. This event will provide new insights from a study focused on the experiences of both decision-makers in correctional facilities and people who were incarcerated during the COVID-19 pandemic. This event will present findings from the research study, emphasizing difficult care delivery and operational decisions undertaken by leaders, as well as the lasting – and often scarring – impact on people who were incarcerated. Following the brief research presentations, the event will include a panel discussion moderated by Joanne Kenen, Commonwealth Journalist in Residence at Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health. The panel will include Mike Winans and Basia Skudrzyk, who were incarcerated during the pandemic, and Dr. Lara Strick, an infectious disease specialist at Washington State Department of Corrections. An overall objective of the event will be to spark a conversation about how to ensure that the health and safety of incarcerated people is better protected in an era of massive pandemics.
