As part of the AHA’s Hospitals Against Violence initiative, the American Organization of Nurse Executives will host a webinar Sept. 12 at 12 p.m. ET exploring the issue of human trafficking from the perspective of a mother of a survivor. Ingrid Johnson, R.N., manager of patient access at Atlantic Health System’s Overlook Medical Center in Summit, N.J., discusses the search for her teenage daughter, a victim of traffickers, and her family’s long journey to recovery. The webinar is the second in a two-part series addressing human trafficking. The first webinar, moderated by Claire Zangerle, R.N., AHA board member and chief nurse executive at Allegheny Health Network in Pittsburgh, explores lessons learned by Dignity Health in implementing their human trafficking program.
