Students learn more about trafficking


 November 2017

College of Medicine students took part in SUSTAIN training this fall in Chicago.

The acronym stands for Stand Up to Sex Trafficking: Awareness, Implementation and Networking. It’s a project of the American Medical Women’s Association’s Physicians Against the Trafficking of Humans (PATH).

Among the participants were 23 nursing and medical students and physicians from five medical institutions across three states. Two AMWA physicians, Julia Geynisman and Kanani Titchen, presented information about how sex trafficking happens, who is at risk, and how to recognize it in health-care settings.
