In the Community – Poe Center Annual Meeting
Young Moore is proud to sponsor this Alice Aycock Poe Center for Health Education event.
Human Trafficking: Beyond Awareness with Primary Prevention (Online)
With North Carolina consistently ranking in the top ten for calls to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, January has been proclaimed as Human Trafficking Awareness Month to bring attention to this issue. The Poe Center’s 2020 Annual Meeting and Conferences will address the confusion and misperceptions around the root causes and prevention strategies pertaining to human trafficking. The goal is to elevate the conversation past basic awareness, provide a deeper understanding of human trafficking, educate conference attendees about primary prevention strategies, and empower them to make an impact.
