Kristina Borham of Oxford, a third-year medical student at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine (GCSOM), first became interested in the subject of human trafficking when she worked on a donation drive to support Free the Girls, an organization that encourages and empowers women freed from sex trafficking. Following that experience, Kristina attending two trainings on sex trafficking with the American Medical Women's Association's (AMWA) Physicians Against the Trafficking of Humans. Kristina said that the more she learned about human trafficking, the more strongly she felt that other medical students needed education on the topic. To that end, she recently implemented and delivered a curriculum on human trafficking to second-year medical students at GCSOM.
