The University of Georgia has established a new interdisciplinary center to combat human trafficking through research, programming and policy development.
DHS S&T awarded $775,000 to the Harvard University T.H. Chan School of Public Health to conduct research and evaluate the impact of the Department’s Blue Campaign.
As human trafficking evolves as a health concern, medical schools are starting to include the topic in education. However, it’s still in the early stages, says a Mayo Clinic study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine. The research was led by third-year medical student at Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine, Jennifer Talbott, who suggested that human trafficking training be included in the curriculum at the school.
Karen Countryman-Roswurm, founder and director of the center of the Center for Combating Human Trafficking at Wichita State University, is available to discuss issues related to human trafficking.
