Tackling Trafficking through Health Care
The majority of trafficking victims in the United States have contact with a health professional while being trafficked. Yet, most health professionals have never been educated about trafficking. To train millions of practicing clinicians and trainees in the United States, more trainers, with content knowledge on human trafficking and teaching skills, are needed. This academy will equip public health and healthcare educators with the content knowledge and teaching skills to train health professionals in their communities to respond to human trafficking. This interactive, two-day program will focus on trafficking core content knowledge, teaching plan development and teaching practice to refine each participant’s human trafficking training skills
