Note on the Author

Jenna Healy recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science with Departmental Honors in Public Health and a Biology minor. Mentored by Dr. Angela Bailey, Assistant Professor of Health, and Kinesiology, she completed her honors thesis during the 2022-2023 academic year. Growing up in the age of the internet and social media, Jenna was able to listen to the stories of former inmates from across the country and discuss their personal experiences with the prison healthcare systems. These stories inspired her to learn more about the issues with the prison healthcare system and to detail interventions that are currently available while offering suggestions to improve them. Jenna will be attending the University of Massachusetts, Amherst to earn her Master of Public Health in Epidemiology starting in Fall 2023.
