Education Program

This year's C. Clayton Griffin, MD, Memorial AMA-YPS Assembly Luncheon will feature an education session entitled, "Criminal Justice Reform – A Health Advocacy Issue."  The session will take place in Marquis Salon C from noon to 1:15 p.m.  

Program Description: Negative encounters with the criminal justice system lead to many detrimental health consequences. These consequences have become more prominent as the number of arrest related deaths receive considerable attention from various communities and media outlets. Changing the interaction between the criminal justice system and the US population will ultimately lead to improved health of communities and seek to create avenues through which physicians can facilitate that change. Using case studies and small group discussions, this program will examine how physician leaders can use their medical expertise to advocate for criminal justice reform. 


Volunteer to serve on the AMA-YPS Reference, Handbook Review or Credentials Committee by emailing yps@ama-assn.org or when you register for the AMA-YPS Assembly meeting.
