ARCH Network Seminar Series

This series is designed to introduce or review new topics relevant to ARCH Network members. During its first year, the Seminar Series is focusing on critical elements in the conduct of clinical research based in correctional facilities. Each Seminar Series will be followed by a Works in Progress meeting for our ARCH Network Grant Award Recipients to present their research and get feedback and ideas from ARCH Network members – this will be a great venue allows senior researchers to help guide newer investigators in the area and for junior investigators to learn more about conducting critical and ethical research in criminal justice and health.
