The Michigan State Medical Society and the Wayne County Medical Society are currently engaged in an initiative to increase awareness about human trafficking. Several of our residents and attendings are involved in this effort.
There has been an unprecedented joining of three major county medical societies representing more than 6,000 Michigan physicians from Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties who have come together in unwavering support of the passing of Michigan’s Anti-Human Trafficking legislation. The growth of Human Trafficking is among the most serious problems plaguing Michigan children, adolescents and adults today. Human Trafficking has risen to the forefront as a major healthcare, law enforcement and social challenge which requires our immediate attention and action. Please join the physician community as we work collaboratively to fight against Human Trafficking.
