ABOUT Dr. Andrisse
I am a formerly incarcerated person with three felony convictions, sentenced to ten years in prison as a prior and persistent career criminal. I was told by a prosecutor that I had no hope for change. I am now an endocrine scientist and assistant professor at Howard University College of Medicine, former faculty at Johns Hopkins Medicine, and visiting faculty at Imperial College London, and Georgetown University Medical Center. I am also the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Prison to Professionals (P2P), a nonprofit that helps 100s currently and formerly incarcerated men and women nationwide obtain higher education. I have also recently written a ‘#1 New Release in Educator Biographies’ book titled ‘From Prison Cells to PhD: It is Never Too Late to Do Good’.
