I'm very happy to be working as Co-Lead Consultant with Wendy Macias-Konstantopoulos, M.D., M.P.H., emergency physician at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard, to develop a national screening tool for adults at risk for human trafficking. Wendy is the co-founding director of the MGH Human Trafficking Initiative and founding medical and executive director of the MGH Freedom Clinic, an innovative health care clinic for human trafficking survivors. We are working with an impressive Advisory Group that includes Bukola OriolaDawn SchillerMarq D. Taylor, Virginia Ortega-Perez, Dr. Kenneth Chuang of UCLA Medical School Refugee Trauma Program, and other national experts. The National Human Trafficking Training and Technical Assistance Center of the the US Office of Trafficking in Persons (DHHS) has entrusted us with this important project. I am ever grateful for such exciting opportunities to contribute to this important work and to learn from my fellow colleagues.
