Trafficking In Persons Talks by Katherine Welch, MD

Global Pediatrics hosted two presentations by child trafficking expert, Katherine Welch, MD. Dr. Welch gave a pediatric noon conference titled "Child Trafficking: The Global Situation" as well as co-facilitating a journal club with 2nd-year medicine-pediatrics resident, Hope Pogemiller, MD.

Residents learned about the significance of the problem of child trafficking, definitions, key features, and prevention strategies, including when to suspect a clinic patient may be a victim of human trafficking.
