The Health and Justice Applied Research Collective (HJ-ARC) is developing a free, online resource that can be used by anyone wanting to learn or teach others about prison health. The project team is co-led by people with lived experience of incarceration and includes students, trainees, and community members. We are seeking guidance from experts with lived experience of the prison system about what topics are most important to include in this teaching resource. We are inviting people with any Canadian incarceration experience (in federal or provincial, in the last five years) to participate in a virtual conversation. Participants will be compensated $50 for sharing their time and expertise.

If you have questions or are interested in participating, please get in touch with Amanda Butler at
