Guest Host: Jen Golbeck

One company – Corizon – holds contracts for providing health care in over 500 prison facilities nationwide. There are growing concerns, however, about the quality of care they provide, which prompted the D.C. City Council to recently reject their proposal for servicing the city jail. We talk with a reporter who explored care Corizon provided for women on Rikers Island in New York and consider the implications of this issue locally and nationwide.
