General Purpose:

The Clinical Research Coordinator will lead in the conduct and coordination of a clinical trial, Women’s Initiative Supporting Health. The purpose of WISH is to work with community partners to help women with justice involvement link to needed health services and to do a research study on the intervention.

The intervention and measure sessions could take place at the courthouse, University of Rochester Medical Center, Monroe County jail, halfway houses, or Alternatives for Battered Women, depending on patient availability and needs. Offer other justice involved women treatment at WISH-TC, a transitions clinic offering timely medical care to recently incarcerated Monroe County women upon release. WISH-TC is located in Medicine in Psychiatry Service in Henrietta near Movies 10, adjacent to Strong Ties. Besides primary medical care which we offer, we will link patients to needed specialists, as well as substance abuse, mental health, and community re-entry programs.
