Speaker Spotlight – Schirato and Taylor to discuss “Human Trafficking” at Aug. 1 Patient Safety Summit

Co-founders of Reclaim 611, Carrie Schirato and Carrie Taylor will discuss “Human Trafficking: What Signs Healthcare Workers Should Look For” during the DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) Foundation’s 12th Annual Patient Safety Summit on August 1. The Summit is from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Hurst Conference Center. Schirato and Taylor’s presentation begins at 1:30 p.m.

Schirato and Taylor have a combined 26 years of nursing experience. They co-founded Reclaim 611, which stands for Restoring Every Captive by Listening, Asking, Intervening and Mobilizing, in 2017. They are supported by Texas healthcare providers who are passionate about disrupting the $150 billion global industry of human trafficking. Their enthusiasm for justice and the impact of human trafficking in the very places they live and work are what propelled them to create Reclaim611 and step into the fight.

Attendees will learn the definition of human trafficking, common misconceptions, how to recognize the physical and psychological signs of human trafficking, know how to respond using trauma informed care, and appropriately report utilizing customized protocols.

The theme for this year’s Summit is “Safer by the Dozen,” in honor of its 12th anniversary.
