Don't miss the September 29, 2017 Women in the CJS through a Public Health Lens Symposium co-hosted by STAR at Washington University in St. Louis.
The symposium will use a public health lens to examine the factors that drive women into the criminal justice system, and then focus on various treatment approaches to addressing these factors.
