Susie Baldwin explores the ways the healthcare sector can better detect human trafficking, and other forms of violence in this TEDMED talk. A leading expert in the field, she opens with the story of Raffe, portraying how a typical interaction in an emergency room becomes a missed opportunity to assist a survivor of labor trafficking. “No one knew that Raffe was trafficked, subject to forced labor in the heartland of the United States.” Through this, she explores ways medical professionals can identify survivors and connect them to the services they need.
