Description

Please join Dr. Catherine Lucey for this special lecture by Ob/Gyn and Medical Anthropologist Carolyn Sufrin from Johns Hopkins University, on October 3, at 5pm in N225. This lecture is open to the entire UCSF community. It is co-sponsored by the Dept. of Anthropology, History and Social Medicine; The UCSF National Center for Excellence in Women’s Health; the Dept. of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences; the UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations at ZSFG; and the School of Nursing.

TITLE: When jail is the safety net: Women’s health and mass incarceration in the U.S.

Incarceration is a social determinant of health, and the lives of most women cycling through the criminal justice system are characterized by poverty, racism, trauma, addiction, unstable housing, and poor access to health care. Women’s health behind bars illuminates the intersection between health disparities, mass incarceration, and reproductive justice.

BIO: Carolyn Sufrin is a medical anthropologist and obstetrician-gynecologist at Johns Hopkins University. She has worked extensively as a clinician, researcher, educator, and advocate on reproductive health issues affecting incarcerated women, highlighting the intersections between mass incarceration and the politics of reproduction.
