Prison Praxis

Prison Praxis is an H-STAT service program dedicated to building a network of support for locally incarcerated individuals. Through the program, our goal is to expose health students and professionals to the lived realities of those living behind bars through regular visits to prisons, detention centers and jails around Georgia while cultivating consciousness amongst health students and professionals about the effect of incarceration on the individual, community, and society at large via post-visit debriefs and speaking events. We also partner with local grassroots organizations around Georgia who advocate for and work directly with incarcerated individuals, building the capacity of these organizations to incorporate the skills/perspectives of health students and professionals. 

Students learn about the Stewart Detention Center in Lumpkin County, GA.
