The Corizon Staff at Tutwiler Prison for Women, in Wetumpka, Alabama, recently participated in several fundraising projects in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Staff at Tutwiler is dedicated to the ongoing improvement in women’s healthcare for incarcerated women; and they work diligently each day to ensure that each inmate patient in their care receives the highest quality jail healthcare available.

The prison strives to provide ongoing education as well as regular monitoring to ensure that the incarcerated women entrusted to their care remain healthy while jailed at Tutwiler. Most inmate patients show an improvement during their detainment due to the high standard of care that they receive from qualified staff at Tutwiler Prison for Women.

The Corizon Staff held several fundraisers during the month of October to include a bake sale, penny wars, and Breast Cancer Awareness T-Shirt days. The HealthCare Unit raised a total of $800, which helped the Alabama Department of Corrections at Tutwiler raise a total amount of $3,900. Way to go team Tut!
