    AJPH MARCH 2020: “THE COLLATERAL EFFECTS OF MASS INCARCERATION".(ENGLISH)

    This podcast is about a supplement of the AJPH published in January 2020 and dedicated to the public health dimensions of mass incarceration.

My interviewees are Lauren Brinkley and David Cloud, Guest Editors of the supplement. Lisa Bowleg, who was AJPH associate editor in charge of the supplement, and Martin Lajous, PI of a Mexican study about the health of the relatives of incarcerated people.
