Healthstyles: Health and National Social Challenges

Tune in to CHMP’s Healthstyles Radio Thursday, June 18th, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM on WBAI, 99.5 FM in New York City and streamed online here.  In this segment of Healthstyles you’ll hear this:

 

Co-Producer Liz Seegert takes an in-depth look at some of New York’s diverse family caregivers and learns that most face similar challenges. Ms. Seegert’s report is part of a journalist-in-aging fellowship from the gerontological society of america and new america media, sponsored by the silver century foundation.

Next time, Liz Seegert will report on one center that offers caregivers some respite by giving their loved one the next best thing to home.

 

Graduate Fellow Kristin Westphaln’s segment;  Tale from the Crib: How sex trafficking could appear appealing to an adolescent:

 

Healthstyles presents a “pimped out” tale from the crib as Kristi Westphaln tackles the topic of sex trafficking with a teen-aged twist.  The discussion of how sex trafficking could appear appealing to adolescents is joined by Ohio based expert pediatric nurse practitioner, Dr. Gail Hornor.

 

Join Westphaln and Hornor as they define domestic minor sex trafficking, highlight teen-specific risk factors, identify  the long term consequences of involvement in sex trafficking, and focus on resiliency factors that can help protect our teens.

 

Help us to turn off the trafficking light.

As adolescent recruitment into sex trafficking exists,

we must empower teens with tools to resist.

Protect with all senses: look, listen, and feel.

Adolescence can be rough- but hope and love are real.
