Chronic Kidney Disease as a Paradigm for Managing Chronic Disease in the Correctional Setting

As the incarcerated population ages, the increasing prevalence of chronic kidney disease creates a significant burden on correctional facilities. This presentation summarizes a narrative review that discusses risk factors for CKD in the criminal justice-involved population and highlights the need to address health disparities of chronic disease in this vulnerable population. The poster also reviews barriers to management of CKD during and after release from incarceration, as well as strategies to improve CKD and associated health conditions for the incarcerated population.
