REBECCA WALKER, MD
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF EMERGENCY MEDICINE, STANFORD UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE

Presented ByRebecca 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.

Desired Outcomes:

  • Distinguish the red flags for identifying human trafficking victims
  • Describe the utility of having a protocol for human trafficking
  • Use resources to support potential victims of human trafficking
  • Describe potential needs of victims of human trafficking
