Despite efforts done for generations, human trafficking is still a very real issue to be concerned with. 

As referenced by HEAL Trafficking, Sex trafficking is nuanced(ˈnuˌɑnst) and multidimensional, and medical professionals are on the front line when it comes to responding.

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine in Amarillo is pairing with the Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health to host a symposium for medical professionals. 

“They are Not for Sale” will be on October 16 from 9 to 1, and will teach healthcare workers about the various signs to look for that could be the signs of trafficking. 

Jordan Greenbaum M.D. will be the keynote speaker and has experience as the medical director for the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children and co-chair of HEAL Trafficking. 

This symposium will take place over Zoom, with a $25 registration fee before the 8th. 

This registration can be done here.
