" I am excited for the opportunity to collaborate with fellows locally and internationally. I cannot wait to see how the 2019 cohort changes the world.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Educating Healthcare Providers on Human Trafficking
The goal of my project is to educate current and future healthcare professionals on human trafficking. Research suggests that close to 88% of human trafficking victims have some sort of interaction with the healthcare system while they are being trafficked. Despite this high rate of interaction, many healthcare providers have never been formally trained on human trafficking. Therefore, it is my goal to educate as many people as possible on the intersection of human trafficking and healthcare.
