Newswise — National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is Saturday, Jan. 11. Through its Center for Combating Human Trafficking, Wichita State University is home to one of the only evidence-based centers that serves victims and survivors of abuse, exploitation and trafficking. The center goes beyond rescuing victims to directly address the underlying issues that create a context in which human trafficking can occur.

Karen Countryman-Roswurm is founder and director of the center, a licensed master social worker and a Doctor of Psychology, as well as an assistant professor at Wichita State.

She is available to discuss issues related to human trafficking at: 

316-978-7013 or [email protected].
