Quinnipiac University

The Real Women of Orange is the New Black

Beatrice Codianni and Carol Soto, who were incarcerated at the same time as Piper Kerman, author of "Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison," will discuss their experiences of health care at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut.

Each of these women inspired a character in the book, and will discuss how their access to and experiences of health care impacted them during their time inside. They will be joined by Jaclyn Lucibello, a woman incarcerated for three years in the York Correctional Institution in Niantic, Connecticut, the state's only female correctional facility, giving birth during her time there.

The event is co-sponsored by College of Arts and Science, School of Nursing, School of Medicine, School of Law, School of Health Sciences, as well as the following groups: Campus Crosstalk, The Prison Project, the Department of Cultural and Global Engagement, the School of Medicine's Inclusion and Diversity Council, as well as The Center of Interprofessional Healthcare Education and The Schweitzer Institute.

The event is free and open to the public, as well as Quinnipiac students, faculty and staff.
