Intersection of Human Trafficking and the Opioid Crisis

The American Hospital Association’s Hospital Against Violence initiative hosts this webinar to aid health care providers in understanding and addressing the role of opioid use for individuals at risk of, currently experiencing, or recovering from trafficking.
