Redmond-NicoleAs a resident in Internal Medicine at Emory University, Dr. Nicole Redmond cared for an inmate of the local jail in her continuity clinic based at Grady Memorial Hospital, the large county hospital in Atlanta GA.  Through that experience, she became interest in how the racial and socioeconomic disparities within the criminal justice system may contribute to disparities in health and health care.

Dr. Redmond joined the DOPM faculty in 2011, which includes clinical practice in the Cooper Green Outpatient Medical Clinic.  Upon learning of her interest in criminal justice populations, she was invited to participate on the Alabama Reentry Council and subsequently elected as the chairperson of their Healthcare and Rehabilitation Working Group.  Dr. Redmond was also elected to the Jefferson County Board of Health for a 5 year term, commencing in January 2013. 

Recently, Dr. Redmond received funding to participate in the Transitions Clinic Network, a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) funded initiative to provide transitional health care services to ex-offenders in Jefferson County.  Her work, as well as other programs by Reentry Council partners, was highlighted in a recent al.com news report
