NORTH HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A conference on human trafficking will be held at Quinnipiac University.

The conference, called, “Stolen lives: An interprofessional response to human trafficking,” will be held Thursday and Friday at the university’s North Haven campus.

Quinnipiac’s School of Nursing and Albert Schweitzer Institute, along with St. Vincent’s Medical Center of Bridgeport, is holding the conference.

Organizers say they hope to bring together a diverse group of people interested in learning more about what can be done to prevent and stop trafficking.

The conference will open on Thursday evening with a keynote presentation by Katherine Chon, the senior adviser on trafficking in persons at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and co-founder of the Polaris Project, an organization combatting sex and labor trafficking in the U.S. and abroad.
