Legislator William R. Spencer, M.D. Partners with Huntington Hospital’s Human Trafficking Task Force

Huntington, NY – With 88% of human trafficking survivors interfacing with the healthcare system without being identified as victims, Legislator William R. Spencer has sponsored legislation to develop educational materials to aide healthcare professionals in recognizing victims of this modern day form of slavery. 

The bill received unanimous support from the legislature at last night’s Suffolk County General Meeting. The Suffolk County Department of Health Services will now work with Dr. Santhosh Paulus, a champion of the cause, in developing the educational materials. 

According to recent reports, the percentage of potential labor trafficking cases in Suffolk County is more than double the national  average.
