Minnesota nurse practitioner Laurel Edinburgh helped establish an intervention program for sexually exploited teens. The program could become a model for the state as it creates a network intended to help young victims of sex trafficking. Edinburgh said she began working on the project after caring for girls who had been sexually exploited and lacked support or connections to families, schools and other institutitions. "I felt that these were girls that were slipping through the cracks, and they shouldn't have been," she said.
