About this webinar

The incidence of human trafficking has increased at an alarming rate over the past decade. In fact, human trafficking victims are very likely to present at family planning clinics and health centers. As a health care provider, how do you know when the patient in front of you is a victim of human trafficking? If a victim does present, what is the best way to respond to assist her/him?

This webinar will cover these questions, include case studies, offer resources, and provide an opportunity for an interactive Q&A period with the presenters.

If you have further questions, you are welcome to email Dr. Tonya Chaffee (
