Our patients' stories

At Justice Health Initiative our patients are at the heart of everything we do. Here you can find out more about their individual stories. Below you can watch 'A Day In The Life Of Leo', a short video produced by Boston Globe to provide an insight to Leo's daily life. You can also click on the stories of Freddy, Simplisa and the conjoined twins (Naomie and Delicia), as well as view our photo gallery. 

Alongside this video, The Boston Globe released an article in two parts about Leo's life. To read these please click the buttons below.
