Human Trafficking for the Healthcare Provider

Breakout Session
Student Building (Block) SMC 303 The Porch

This workshop will focus on human trafficking for the healthcare provider. Current research shows that health services are one of the top five access points of help for a human trafficking victim. Studies report 20-80% of the trafficked population in the United States had accessed the healthcare system while they were being trafficked. Healthcare providers are poised to help this population.
