Research Presentation Overview:
This presentation will provide an in-depth look at the prevalence and
demand for sex trafficking across 11 cities in the United States, with
particular attention paid to selling sex on the internet. The findings
from this research project have a direct implication for law enforcement
in trying to counter sex trafficking across the country. In addition to
discussing demand for sex on the Internet, Drs Kosloski and Ryon will
discuss the health concerns associated with sex trafficking.
