Sarah Berry is a board certified Clinical Nurse Specialist who has practiced in critical care and emergency nursing since 2009. She is a certified Emergency Nurse and recently graduated with her Doctorate in Nursing Practice. Her focus for human trafficking has been educating the healthcare provider on how to identify patients, provide trauma-informed care, and avoid re-traumatization.

The HTTF provides survivor-centered, comprehensive interdisciplinary care and support through education and promoting awareness to Beaumont Health and the communities it serves.
