Infectious disease in prisons and jails: Incarcerated people, many of whom are members of racial and ethnic minorities, have worse health outcomes than free populations. Infectious diseases—including new pathogens like COVID-19, as well as influenza, HIV, and hepatitis C—threaten the health of residents in jails and prisons and surrounding communities. Professor Goldhaber-Fiebert will work with a team to explore how data analytics, decision science, simulation modeling, and infectious disease epidemiology can improve the health of residents of California state prisons and enhance preparedness for future epidemics.
