Philadelphia programs highlighted at recent correctional healthcare conference

Philadelphia programs highlighted at recent correctional healthcare conferenceIn November, Corizon Health Vice President of Operations (VPO) Mary Silva and Regional Director of Nursing (DON) Latasha Deer, both of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, proudly presented the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) and the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) programs at the “We’re All In This Together” Correctional Healthcare Conference, held in Marlton, New Jersey.

The healthcare conference came to fruition as a result of the collaborative efforts of local stakeholders to form a northeast chapter of the American Correctional Health Services Association (ACHSA). In their presentation, Ms. Silva and Ms. Deer reviewed in detail the benefits of providing the SANE and SART programs in a correctional setting, as well as the steps that were taken to implement such highly specialized and comprehensive forensic services in urban jails.

Thank you to both Mary and Latasha for representing Corizon Health at this recent correctional healthcare conference—and for educating conference attendees on these two great Corizon Health programs.
