Advanced Correctional Healthcare, Inc. (ACH) announced the promotion of Dr. Travis Schamber from Site Physician in Wisconsin to Regional Medical Director of the Northern Division for ACH last week. In his new role, Dr. Schamber will manage the team of practitioners in his territory.
In addition, Dr. Schamber will also become the first Director of LGBTQ Services at ACH. In this role, he will train our practitioners on the issues surrounding the care and treatment of incarcerated LGBTQ patients, including guidelines on hormone treatment in correctional facilities. Due to the sensitive nature of this subject and the ever-changing laws in corrections, Dr. Schamber will work closely with Jessica Young, Esq., Senior Counsel for ACH, as we endeavor to provide the most appropriate and compassionate care to this population of patients.
Effective January 1, 2018, Dr. Schamber will be available for consultation with both ACH practitioners and our jail administration clients.
