The Research Committee has been working on advocating for the implementation of M-SIGHT into medical school curricula. M-SIGHT is a multi-modal educational module that involves online learning, medical documentation, and patient-based simulation to thoroughly teach medical students how to identify possible risk factors of trafficking and the resources to which they should refer victims/ patients at risk of being trafficked. We have been working to coordinate with the founders of HEAL Trafficking, who were involved in the authorship of the M-Sight project, to discuss this further! The current chair of the committee is Minka Gil and the assistant co-chair is Imaima Casubhoy.
Prior Research Projects:
The Education Committee is looking for people to help create educational videos on labor trafficking. If you are interested in getting involved in this please email firstname.lastname@example.org. They are also working on revising the current LIFT curriculum to include new topics, such as how trafficking recognition varies in rural and indigenous communities. If you are interested in joining the student interest group please email email@example.com.
