McCauley & Johnson Awarded SoN Grant

Assistant Professor Erin McCauley and PhD Candidate Erin Johnson were awarded an intramural grant from the School of Nursing for their project, “Consequences of a History of Incarceration for Reproductive Health Services (CHOIR-HS)”. This study will take steps to understand how incarceration history stigma shapes sexual and reproductive health service delivery through qualitative interviews and a survey-based experiment, demonstrating how stigma engenders and reinforces devastating health disparities among the formerly incarcerated and, given the disproportionate risk of incarceration, shed light on how mass incarceration may act as a fundamental cause of population-level disparities in health.
