New Online Seminar: Human Trafficking and the Healthcare Professional

A 2014 Loyola University Chicago School of Law study found that 88 percent of sex trafficking survivors reported healthcare system contact while they were being trafficked. This program focuses on the intersection of healthcare and human trafficking. Dr. Jeffrey Barrows presents the frequency with which those trafficked encounter healthcare professionals and indicators of human trafficking within the healthcare setting. He defines human trafficking, its scope, subtypes, and predisposing factors. The presentation concludes with a discussion of how a healthcare organization can prepare to respond when those who are being trafficked enter their facility.
