KHA Town Hall: Trafficking in America: Let’s Start the Conversation

April 30 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Every year, thousands of people are being sexually exploited in the United States. Allied health professionals often encounter these victims and proper training increases the likelihood they can identify and respond properly to the situation. This session will deepen your knowledge of risk factors, vulnerabilities and health concerns that affect trafficking victims. The tactics of the traffickers that prey on these individuals will also be discussed. Understanding the mindset of the victim and trafficker better equips healthcare professionals to develop appropriate response protocols for the safest outcome.


  • Define human trafficking
  • Describe what makes someone vulnerable to being trafficked
  • Recognize some of the key health concerns of trafficking victims
  • Identify barriers to victims receiving proper healthcare
  • Explain how to report a suspicion of human trafficking
