The event will focus on the topic of human trafficking, with speakers to include Donna Plourde the Executive Director at Real Life Giving, a non-profit committed to fighting sex trafficking and exploitation through education and training, and to supporting survivors and at-risk women.

- Discuss physical and psychological clues that a patient displays indicating that they may be a trafficking victim, and identify best practices for responding and reporting.
- Describe what it takes to recover from drug addiction and sex trafficking and how to best support victims so they can become survivors.
- Identify three ways that healthcare providers can support victims of human trafficking who seek care in a clinical setting.
- List three reasons or barriers patients may decline help or leave their situation.
