Medical Anthropology MS candidate Jeff Nicklas will share his research plan regarding access to healthcare among survivors of human trafficking in the United States. What does health and well-being mean to those who have survived a trafficking experience? What forms of care are available to these individuals? What barriers might exist for survivors of trafficking acquiring the care they need? Jeff will provide a background on human trafficking and the political-economy of access to care as well as share his master’s thesis research plans for discussion and feedback. RSVP to migrant@bu.edu.
