Correctional Health Advocacy and Reform Group (CHARG)

Membership Eligibility: All Members of the Jefferson Community

Membership Dues or Fees: $0.00

Description: This organization would focus on medical advocacy and student education on health disparities in incarcerated persons. Correctional centers are often held to a lower standard of patient care or simply bypass regulations that would otherwise be unacceptable. This club hopes to educate students about bridging that gap and take one step closer to healthcare equity in the future.
