In a world caught up in multiple crises (Global warming, a rabid election process, COVID-19, Systemic Racism), who is there to notice that Human Trafficking is continuing at a breakneck speed? My guest, Dr. Jessica Peck, a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner for over 20 years is not just paying attention, she is active in many different avenues to arrest this menace and keep it from continuing in society. She is an expert pediatric clinician and anti-trafficking advocate who provides innovative, visionary, & award-winning leadership to develop & lead inclusive & diverse interprofessional teams in multiple arenas to provide outcomes of high-quality health care. She is a recognized and published national expert about human trafficking. She worked with other national organizations to equip healthcare professionals to combat human trafficking of children and advocates for other vulnerable youth populations. This was an inspiring and deeply informative episode about how nurses can help stop trafficking of children, who are even MORE at risk during COVID-19.
