No Longer A Mystery: The 2018 INMED National Healthcare Service Award Recipient


This award recognizes a citizen who is a role model in providing healthcare for his or her own people.


The 2018 National Healthcare Service Award Recipient is Betsy Sutherland. As an elementary school teacher, Betsy became absorbed over the tragedies surrounding human trafficking, including labor, sex and child trafficking. She carried these convictions into medical school at Saint Louis University, where her experience in education was quickly recognized by her peers within the anti-trafficking community. Betsy is connected with the Stop Human Trafficking Network where she leads small group, hands-on trafficking case simulations to help learners to rapidly recognize and respond to abusive situations. Watch for more advocacy and innovation from Betsy Sutherland in the next season of her life as a family physician in South Bend, Indiana.
