Program for a December 2017 Problem Solving Initiative at the University of Michigan Law School on the topic of identifying human trafficking victims in health care settings.

It is estimated that up to one third of all victims of human trafficking come into contact with a health care provider during their trafficking and are unrecognized. Health care settings offer a unique opportunity to identify victims of human trafficking and connect them with services and support. In a collaborative, multidisciplinary setting, students were tasked with developing innovations to increase the identification of victims of human trafficking in health care settings.
