Session #2: Highlights from the LEAP Scholars/Investigators Program
Chairs: Warren Ferguson, Jessica Hulsey
The JCOIN LEAP Scholar’s program supports clinicians, criminologists, analysts, and early career graduate students interested in collaborating on research in justice settings. Twenty-seven (27) participants have completed the one-year training and another 20 participants are active at this time. During this session, program evaluation results will be followed by a panel of five individuals who have completed the program who will describe the impact of the program from their perspectives.

Session #3: Discussion Session: Mobile Health Units
Chair: Nick Zaller
We’ll hear about early experiences incorporating MHUs in service delivery and in research, and discuss lessons learned, implications for treatment services, and need for additional research on implementation/effectiveness.
- Panelists: Ron Vlasaty (Chestnut Hub), Linda Hurley (Brown Hub), Sandy Springer (Yale-ACTION Hub), Randi Proffitt (TCU Hub)
Session #4: Poster Session
Chairs: Lori Ducharme
In this rapid-fire poster session, research teams have been invited to provide brief (5-minute) presentations on a research finding, or to re-share a poster presented at a 2022 conference.
Session #5: Discussion Session: Policy Trends and Research Gaps around SUD in Justice Systems
Chair: Tisha Wiley
We’ll discuss how recent and emerging policy trends (e.g., bail reform, COVID-era flexibilities, decriminalization, etc.) are influencing how services are delivered and how we conduct research to study them. Within these changing contexts, what practical issues need a broader evidence base to support SUD service delivery in justice systems?
- Panelists: Panelists: Brandon del Pozo (Brown University); Elizabeth Waddell (OHSU); Marc Swogger (University of Rochester Medical Center); Heidi Grunwald and Jonathan Larsen (Temple University)
Insights on myths and misinformation as barriers to implementing evidence-based SUD services. What are the biggest information barriers, and what can JCOIN do to address them?
