NSU Institute for Child Health Policy Makes Poster Presentation on Domestic Violence and Human Trafficking at National Conference

NSU’s ICHP, led by director Deborah Mulligan, M.D., made a poster presentation about domestic violence and human trafficking at American Public Health Association’s APHA annual meeting in Denver held in early November.

Nova Southeastern University’s Institute for Child Health Policy (ICHP), led by director Deborah Mulligan, M.D., made a poster presentation about domestic violence and human trafficking at American Public Health Association’s (APHA) annual meeting in Denver held in early November. The presentation was titled “Health Care’s Role in Domestic Violence and Human Trafficking”. ICHP’s presentation was the only poster presentation on human trafficking at an APHA conference on social justice. 


“The good news is that, as the singular voice on the subject, our work, which included Florida Board of Medicine regulatory change, was acknowledged as not only unique, but exceptional,” Mulligan said.This poster was an excellent example of true NSU-wide interdisciplinary collaboration, which set an example for state and country.”

More than 12,000 public health professionals attend the APHA conference. Researchers presented the latest in public health research and practice at over 1,000 scientific sessions, and more than 650 companies, organizations and agencies exhibited in the Public Health Expo. It was a tremendous platform for sharing science, discussing advocacy efforts, building partnerships and addressing emerging health issues.
