University of Minnesota Grand Challenges
Probation and Health
The Robina Institute of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice is part of an interdisciplinary team awarded a University of Minnesota's Driving Tomorrow Grand Challenges research grant for phase 2 of the Grand Challenges project.
Faculty and staff from the Law School, Departments of Medicine, Sociology, Pediatrics, and School of Public Health have developed a project in collaboration with the Hennepin Healthcare and Hennepin County Department of Community Corrections and Rehabilitation examining the intersection between probation supervision and health in Hennepin County. We are supported through the Grand Challenges Initiative’s Fostering Just and Equitable Communities.
For more details, see our Project Overview page.
