Episode 2: Sold for a Chrysler 300

January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month. In light of this, we have a very special episode for you. Annika Huff (formerly Annika Mack), a trafficking survivor, speaks with us about her experiences in the life, how she got out, and what she is doing now. Then, Dr. Bryn Mumma takes us through her research on how we can better identify potential victims in the ED. Dr. Rachel Robitz shares some advice on how to approach these patients, create a safe space, and offer support and resources, and our own Dr. Julia Magaña discusses how she manages this in pediatric patients.

  1. This is a great summary on how a trafficked individual may present to the ED and a reminder of how challenging the ED can be for someone in this situation. We should all have protocols in place to provide resources for those who need it. Keep the great work coming.
