HUMAN TRAFFICKING: A MEDICAL PERSPECTIVE
August 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
Presented By: Rebecca Walker, MD
Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where perpetrators profit from the sexual exploitation and/or forced labor of men, women and children. Human Trafficking is an estimated $32 billion-a-year global industry, and after drug trafficking, it is the world’s second most profitable criminal enterprise. California, a populous border state with a significant immigrant population, is one of the nation’s top destination states for trafficking of human beings. It is a violation of basic human rights, and it is also a crime as defined by U.S. federal law and California state law.
Dr. Walker will discuss hospital and healthcare provider roles, in identifying opportunities for intervention and support for victims of human trafficking.
