OVERVIEW:

Why is this webinar important to medical providers and health care workers?

Studies show that 88% of trafficking survivors have interacted with a medical provider. Anyone can be vulnerable to traffickers but raising awareness of human trafficking empowers medical providers and community members to recognize and respond to this crime. Participants will be educated and empowered to make a difference in their professional roles, local communities and in the lives of those affected by human trafficking.
