On-demand Webinar: Human Trafficking: How Family Physicians Can Recognize and Assist Victims

July 24, 2021 - July 17, 2022
Virtual | , ,

Intended Audience 

Family physicians, family medicine residents, medical students, and life members. 

Objectives

This webinar meets the State of Michigan's human trafficking professional development requirement for medical licensure and is approved for 1 AAFP Prescribed credit.

Human trafficking affects every community in Michigan across age, gender, ethnicity, and socio-economic backgrounds. Family physicians are viewed as critical with their capacity to identify victims of human trafficking. One U.S. study found that more than 85% of survivors had contact with a healthcare professional while being trafficked. Identifying a victim of human trafficking can be complicated, and requires an understanding of the law as well as the warning signs. 

During the session, Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson and Rachel Klamo, DO will provide tips on how to recognize human trafficking, how to assist victims, and strategies used by the Genesee Human Oppression Strike Team.
