Approved: November 2012
Grant Period: November 2012 – December 2014
The goals of the project are to meet the healthcare needs of parolees, prepare parolees for common tobacco use triggers, and build healthy social networking for the criminal justice population through peer‐to-peer services. It will augment criminal justice case managers’ work, by training offenders to provide motivational and group services to their peers through established jail and prison reentry programs.
