I first worked in corrections as a student intern...that was 10 years ago. I’m still serving in a correctional facility and have helped hundreds of incarcerated persons learn to live healthier lives before they return to the community, which I find extremely fulfilling.

Increasing Awareness Among Students Regarding Healthcare Services for Justice-Involved Persons

A Lack of Real Experience

With millions of persons in justice programs at all levels across the country, the need for healthcare, behavioral health, and other rehabilitative services is staggering. However, most students in healthcare training programs graduate without any exposure to this area of practice, and most do not understand the level of need for their services.

Committed to Academic Outreach

Centurion is on a mission to ensure students understand the vast opportunities that exist in working with persons in the justice system and the profound difference healthcare professionals can make in the lives of justice-involved persons under their care. Our commitment to academic outreach is deeply ingrained in each of our programs.

Introducing Students to Correctional Healthcare

We actively cultivate a pipeline of prospective candidates through close partnerships with educational institutions’ faculty and career support services, introducing students to the distinctive realm of correctional healthcare and serving the needs of persons in the criminal justice system so that they may successfully return to the community.

Centurion is Partnered with Over 600 Schools Across the Nation
