St Charles Caregivers Being Trained To Spot Human Sex Trafficking Victims

BEND, OR -- Caregivers at Saint Charles Health have been receiving training about human sex trafficking. The training is being provided by a Guardian Group, a non-profit that fights sex trafficking in partnership with Saint Charles. Amanda Gow is with Guardian and says, "Health care is one of the most impactful places where people have the opportunity to recoghnize somebody who possibly might be being victimized, because many human trafficking victims report being seen in emergency departments or oither health services while being trafficked."  The Partnership Manager at Saint Charles, Carlos Salcedo says the training is very valuable, adding, "We've already benefitted from it because we've been able to identify a trafficking victim." Nine human trafficking training sessions have been held with seven more scheduled in coming months.
