The NCCHC Foundation has received a generous gift from Corizon Health, making Corizon a Gold Partner in the foundation’s Partners in Correctional Health Annual Giving Society.  

Corizon Health is a leading provider of correctional health care services in the United States, providing quality health care services to states and municipalities across the country for more than 40 years. Their gift will establish a scholarship fund specifically for students attending historically black colleges and universities who are interested in the correctional health field to attend National Commission on Correctional Health Care conferences during 2021. The scholarships cover travel, lodging, and conference fees.

“As one of the leaders in the field of providing patient care in correctional settings, Corizon Health is delighted to partner with the NCCHC Foundation to nurture the correctional health workforce by supporting continuing education,” says Corizon CEO James Hyman. “We support the foundation’s important mission to champion the correctional health care field and serve our communities.”

Annual leadership gifts like Corizon’s ensure an ongoing foundation of support to help move the field of correctional health care forward. “We thank Corizon for their partnership and support of HBCUs,” says Jennifer Riskind, NCCHC Foundation director. “Their gift helps demonstrate the importance of corporate leadership and recognizes the importance of workforce diversity in the correctional health care field.”

As the philanthropic charitable arm of the National Commission on Correctional Health Care, the NCCHC Foundation, founded in 2020, champions the correctional health care field and serves the public by supporting research, professional education, scholarships, and patient reentry into the community.
