Introduction to Transitions Clinic Network with Shira Shavit, MD, Executive Director, and Anna Steiner, MPH, MSW, Program Manager
-by Shira Shavit, MD, Executive Director, and Anna Steiner, MPH, MSW, Program Manager.
In this podcast, we learn about the Transitions Clinic Network (TCN), which is a national network of medical homes for individuals with chronic diseases recently released from jail or prison. A unique feature of this model is that each TCN clinic employs a community health worker with a history of incarceration as part of the clinical team. Shira and Anna will discuss this model, and how it is beneficial for clients who are on MAT while in custody and are transitioning back to the community.
