The Bronx Transitions Clinic (BTC) addresses the disparities at the nexus of criminal justice and community health. The burden of mass incarceration disproportionately falls on low-income urban communities of color, like the South Bronx. Since 2009, BTC has provided an innovative model for primary care to more than 500 Bronx residents as they return to the community after incarceration. Patients are treated regardless of their ability to pay.
