The Phlebotomist is a vital member of the clinical laboratory team, whose main function is to obtain patient’s blood specimens by venipuncture and micro-collection.

They will become familiar with all aspects related to blood collection and develop comprehensive skills to perform venipunctures completely and safely.

Understanding Human Trafficking in West Virginia: A Statewide Perspective on a Worldwide Problem

Key Features and Objective of this Presentation:

  • Learn about the basics of human trafficking, from terminology to phenomenology
  • Understand how human trafficking perpetuates slavery in the present day
  • Learn what “red flags” to look for to identify potential survivors of human trafficking
  • Learn what anti-trafficking initiatives are currently being put into action in West Virginia
  • Clarify myths versus realities of human trafficking

Human trafficking is slavery that is perpetrated in the modern era, and encompasses both labor trafficking and sex trafficking. This phenomenon takes a wide range of forms in the modern era. Prevalence of human trafficking varies based on intersecting risk factors, which include systemic/societal, community, family, and individual characteristics. While human trafficking is a risk for people across a wide range of social strata, some populations appear to be at a uniquely elevated risk for being trafficked. A clear understanding of the dynamics that underpin human trafficking is a first step to addressing this problem. Providing assistance to children who are being trafficked requires knowing the signs of child trafficking to look for; what questions to ask to determine if a child is being trafficked; how to approach asking those questions; and what to do to respond in a helpful way that maximizes the child’s safety and allows them to safely exit trafficking. Knowledge of relevant state mandated reporting laws related to human trafficking children is also essential.

This presentation will introduce attendees to key concepts in human trafficking, recognized signs that someone may be being trafficked, and helpful responses to suspected trafficking survivors. This presentation will also discuss and dispel common myths about human trafficking, and will describe current anti-trafficking initiatives in West Virginia.
