With the high rate of sex trafficking in the area, it’s important for Toledoans to be informed.

The University of Toledo’s Interprofessional Education program has teamed up with the Human Trafficking and Social Justice Institute for a series of “Lunch and Learns” focusing on human trafficking starting Thursday, March 24, at noon in Jacobs Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center Room 1200.

Sessions will cover a variety of topics, including labor and sex trafficking, domestic and international trafficking, how to identify signs of trafficking, health-care professionals’ trafficking knowledge, and current trafficking prevention tactics.  

“It’s important for people to be well-informed about trafficking,” said Allison Spencer, program coordinator for UT’s School for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education. “By being informed, people are better-equipped to identify and fix the issue.”

Two additional sessions will be offered Thursday, April 14, and Monday, April 18.

Pizza will be provided at each session.

Space is limited, so participants are encouraged to reserve a spot here.
