Sunday’s episode of the DFW Hospital Council’s and KRLD 1080 AMweekly radio program “The Human Side of Health Care” was a special edition devoted to human trafficking in North Texas.
DFWHC President/CEO Stephen Love and KRLD’s Thomas Miller, who serve as co-hosts of the program, interviewed June (her name has been changed and her voice altered) who was forced into human trafficking by her mother. June explained the prevalence of human trafficking is in Texas.
“She is a courageous woman who has sought treatment and now helps victims of human trafficking,” said Love. “During the interview we will discuss sexual assault and how fortunate North Texas is to have Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) units and the compassionate care they render to victims.”
Local experts included:
• Dr. Brad Sellers, Medical Director for Emergency Medicine, Methodist Dallas Medical Center;
• Janaki Subramanian, SANE Coordinator at Methodist Health System;
• Doreen Freeman, Director of Emergency and Trauma Services, Methodist Health System;
• Cindy Burnette, Director of the SANE Program, Texas Health Resources.
“This episode is a sensitive topic, but it deserves attention,” Love said. “We believe our listeners need to understand how widespread this problem is, especially in North Texas. Our hospitals are educating the public and treating the victims with compassion. We wanted to shine a light on this serious problem and emphasize the crucial treatment being provided by our hospitals.”
The radio program runs throughout 2021 on Sunday’s from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. CDT.
