“What’s Wrong With Prisons,” will kick off the Fall 2019 Sierra College Insights season on the Tahoe-Truckee campus. This session highlights the experiences and unique perspective of Karen Gedney, MD, an internal medicine specialist who spent thirty years taking care of Nevada’s sickest inmates. Dr. Gedney is also a speaker, mentor and author. After retiring as the Senior Physician for the Nevada Department of Corrections, she wrote “30 Years Behind Bars.” Dedicated to shifting the corrections industry paradigm from one of recidivism to one of healing and reintegration, she will share stories, facts and personal experiences.
“Sierra College Insights is a highly engaging and intellectually stimulating program that serves our community,” shares Dr. Kim Bateman, Executive Dean of Sierra College, Truckee-Tahoe.
The no-cost monthly program is open to mature teens, residents and visitors.
Dr. Gedney developed the first protocols for HIV, Hepatitis C and cancer treatment in prison. She holds her doctorate in medicine from University of Cincinnati’s College of Medicine. “30 Years Behind Bars” will be available for purchase on Sept. 13.
