Medical professionals learn signs of sex trafficking
On Monday, April 2 Bellin College, Bellin Health and the Wisconsin Association for Perinatal Care co-sponsored an evening program on Human Trafficking for healthcare professionals. In October 2017 there was a news report of more than 80 people being arrested in Wisconsin as part of a nationwide human trafficking operation. Sixteen of those arrests happened in Brown County. Sadly, that was not unique. Earlier in July, 35 men were arrested throughout Brown County. Dawn Spang, outreach coordinator for EyeHeart World and Sgt. Matt Wilson from the Brown County Sheriff’s Department presented to area professionals at Bellin College on what they need to know to identify victims of trafficking and what resources are available to support survivors.
