Yes, I’m STILL here! The past several months have been full of distractions and obstacles, including a new full time job for me. So, my intentions to keep updates coming via this blog were stalled. Good news is I am working for a wonderful organization called The Health Collaborative. Among MANY other things we do at The Health Collaborative, we provide trainings for healthcare professionals. I am helping to plan a training about Human Trafficking specifically for nurses and social workers that will take place this Spring. I’ll post more about that as the date draws closer. I’m honored to be working for this visionary organization that is working to transform healthcare in the Cincinnati region.
Not long after my last post, I got to attend three excellent events that addressed ways to fight human trafficking. First there was the event organized by Google at the Freedom Center called America’s Children are Not for Sale. It was a day full of important discussions about the need for collaborations and thinking outside the box. Next was the fantastic Historians Against Slavery Conference. I’ve been to 2 of these and I highly recommend. The next HAS Conference will be in 2017. Lastly, I got to spend a full weekend with Becca Stevens, the founder of Thistle Farms. As with my first direct encounter with Becca in June (click here for that post), I got to experience in a very authentic way their motto: Love Heals! Due to the long dry spell, I won’t go into too much detail about those right now.
What’s next? Glad you asked! I’ll save the details for the next post, but it involves the beautiful metal heart in the photo below. Stay tuned for the launch of a very special fund raiser COMING SOON!
Be still, my heart! I love that Ursula took the logo she created for HBS and designed this metal heart. Do you like it?
