5th Annual Human Trafficking Roundtable

Friday, May 25, 2018

8:30AM-10:30AM, Event Location: Chapman University – Rinker Health Campus. Room: 131 Atrium. 9401 Jeronimo Road, Irvine, CA 92618

Healthcare settings are commonly considered the most promising places to identify and serve victims of human trafficking. In fact, one study found that while being exploited, nearly 88% of trafficking victims reported accessing medical care. While human trafficking is a major issue facing Orange County, many healthcare providers fail to recognize the signs, and consequently, the victims of trafficking continue to fly under the radar. Anyone in a healthcare setting may be in a position to recognize human trafficking – from clerical staff to lab technicians, nursing staff, first responders, radiology staff, security personnel, and physicians. This roundtable will provide the healthcare community with knowledge on human trafficking and how they can identify and aid victims. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from a human trafficking survivor as well as two experts in the field.
