The free webinar explores a safe haven medicine residency clinic in Sacramento that serves the dual purpose of providing medical care for human trafficking victims and training future physicians to recognize and treat victims.  The webinar will describe why and how the clinic was started and present a model for replicating the center in other communities using guidance from the 2017 Human Trafficking Leadership Academy.

The webinar is free but an RSVP is requested. Please call 757-876-2711 to register.
