CHICAGO – The medical staff of Cook County Jail in Chicago will be featured in a docudrama Sunday on the Discovery Health Channel. “Doctors Behind Bars” highlights the work of doctors and psychologists who treat chronic diseases, drug addiction and other illnesses of jail inmates. Camera crews spent almost a month following the doctors and staff at Cermak Health Services, which provides health care to the jail. Dr. Nneka Jones, a psychologist at the facility, says it was easy to forget the cameras and stay involved with patients.
