Public Health Approach to Preventing Human Trafficking

PreventConnect has a webinar coming up, Public Health Approach to Preventing Human Trafficking. The session will be held 23 March from 2-3:30 pm ET. Their webinars tend to fill, so if you’re interested I would encourage you to register quickly.  From their site:

A recently published book, Human Trafficking Is a Public Health Issue: A Paradigm Expansion in the United States, is the first book of its kind, with a comprehensive look – from a public health perspective – at human trafficking in the US. This web conference will explore the problematic nature of human trafficking in our communities through the public health lens and how it is linked to sexual violence and domestic violence. We will identify fundamental types and essential elements of human trafficking to consider and incorporate while developing primary prevention programs. We will also highlight examples of anti-human trafficking prevention work being pursued by community health organizations and discuss strategies and actionable goals to create programs to prevent human trafficking in your communities.
