Homestead Hospital Conference Series: Human Trafficking Victims and the Clinical Encounter
Healthcare providers are often the only professionals to interact with human trafficking victims who are still in captivity. South Florida is the third-highest human trafficking destination in the country. With half of all victims under age 18, the United States is considered one of the top destination points for victims of child trafficking and exploitation. Our guest speaker, a Homeland Security special agent, will address front-line healthcare provider readiness to assess, interview and refer suspected trafficking victims.
