Discovery Museum and Chicago Children's Museum present Dr. Nneka Jones Tapia, former warden and Executive Director of the Cook County, IL, Department of Corrections and one of the first psychologists nationally to lead a correctional facility. Dr. Jones Tapia’s passion for mental wellness, criminal justice reform, and supporting young people who have experienced trauma has been an innovative force for new programs in Chicago, including ones specifically targeted at reducing the stigma and trauma that surrounds young people impacted by parental incarceration.
