Videoconference Explores 
Management of Infectious Diseases in Correctional Facilities

Managing Infectious Diseases in Corrections, is the subject of an upcoming National Institute of Justice live satellite videoconference on Thursday, July 8 from noon to 3 p.m. in the Library Conference Center at Indiana University Northwest

Facilitated by the IU Northwest School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) criminal justice professors, the three-hour interactive conference will focus on the implications of infectious diseases for corrections management, methods for evaluating an institution’s infectious disease program and approaches for reducing risk to staff and inmates.

“The program is being offered as part of SPEA’s continuing efforts to serve its students and the criminal justice professional community,” says Joseph  Pellicciotti, director of IU Northwest SPEA programs. He adds that correctional policymakers, adult and juvenile detention workers, community corrections personal and medical service providers working with correctional institutions will find the program “particularly useful.”

The program is free and open to the community. Advance registration is required due to space limitations and can be made by telephoning 219-980-6695 by July 2. More information on IU Northwest’s criminal justice degree programs is available at
