women arms around each other

The Women's Initiative Supporting Health - Transitions Clinic (WISH-TC) helps women recently released from Monroe County Jail or New York State Prison access needed health services in a timely manner. Dr. Diane Morse, a primary care physician directs the program and provides medical care, while peer community health workers assist with a variety of resources.

The program serves patients in need of medical care to also access any needed mental health services including counseling, psychiatric medications, and chemical dependency treatment. Patients are linked directly to these resources at Strong Memorial Hospital.

Research opportunitiesEmpowered woman

In addition to clinical services, WISH-TC has been involved in research since it's beginning in 2012. Research has been funded by several agencies such as NIDA, NIH, SAMHSA, BJA among others. 

WISH-TC is also actively recruiting for several research studies to better understand the healthcare needs, and improve healthcare access to women recently released from incarceration. WISH-TC is currently enrolling English speaking women 18 years or older, who have been released from incarceration within the past year, or within the past 6 months, and are interested in receiving primary care.  To see if you are eligible to participate in one of these studies please call 585-402-4443 or email wishresearch@urmc.rochester.edu.

Both studies reimburse for participation with bus passes and either cash or gift cards.
