HASC is seeking hospitals in our six-county region to serve as host sites for the Essential Human Trafficking Training in Health Care. This four-hour immersive workshop is offered in partnership with Arizona State University Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation.

Attendees will learn about human trafficking and its health impacts, the provider’s role in response and referrals, and tools for identifying and assessing cases. Attendees will also study the racial and social justice implications of such crimes. The facilitators aim to raise awareness that, while trafficking can ensnare anyone, it unduly impacts people of color, LGBTQI youth and other marginalized groups. For more information, click here to visit the event webpage.

HASC is planning to offer the training program in four locations: Los Angeles, Orange County, the Inland Empire and the Central Coast. Hospitals interested in serving as host sites must meet the following requirements:  

  • Availability between January 15 – 31, 2024
  • Room capacity: 50
  • Time slots: 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and/or 1:30 to 5:30 pm

  • Convenient parking (preferably free)
  • Onsite food and beverage service
  • Audio/visual equipment and support
  • Point of contact to assist with logistics
  • Commitment to sending a minimum of 10 employees to the training

As a host hospital, you will receive two seats free of charge and the early bird special rate of $179 for your first 10 attendees.

If your facility meets the above requirements and would like to host our 2024 Essential Human Trafficking Training in your county, please fill out and return the host form no later than Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2023.
