Baltimore's future holds infinite promise, yet too often the city's best assets are silenced by the policies and practices of our criminal justice system. The Third Annual Symposium on the Social Determinants of Health, Squandered Resources: Incarceration-Its Consequences, Costs and Alternatives, will bring together experts from the academic community in Baltimore and across the country together with local community leaders to tackle this pressing issue and work toward ensuring healthier, safer lives for Baltimore's youth today and tomorrow. The symposium will feature panels of leading experts in the fields of public policy, economics, and social science, ex-offenders and a special panel of community organizers working to improve the livelihoods of both ex-offenders and their communities. Speakers will represent a diverse range of expertise and include the individuals listed below. Clickhereto see panel topic areas and speakers.
