I jumped at the chance to have Pam serve as a subject-matter expert when I received a grant from the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) to help educate emergency medical personnel about the growing problem of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. Her expertise in prevention and intervention of this societal problem was integral in the successful execution of the grant requirements.

I have had the pleasure of working with Pam DeWitt-Meza.  Pam is committed and passionate about improving healthcare to victims of violence and abuse.  She is innovative in her approach, and is constantly challenging the healthcare and community systems to improve how we deliver care for this population.  I would not hesitate to work with Pam again in the future, as her commitment to achieving goals is unwavering.  She truly brings an understanding and clarity to working with victims that is much needed and often overlooked.

I have had the opportunity to work alongside Pam for the past several years on the MN Human Trafficking Task Force. She is incredibly passionate about improving trauma-informed services and outcomes for victims of violence and sexual violence through the training and capacity building of health care systems they interact with. She is incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, and thoughtful in her approach to providing training and technical assistance to front line medical staff, as well as administrators. Pam is an expert and leader in her field and I highly recommend her services.

We began our collaboration by presenting sexual violence victimization training to a female audience at the Hennepin County Adult Correction facility; an audience of women with arms crossed and wearing a look of system distrust and skepticism.  Pam gave a thoughtful and honest account of what it means to access a sexual assault forensic exam; the unpleasant realities and benefits of the process, and a recognition of the hardships victims endure.  By the end of our training women walked away armed with the knowledge that their experiences do not need to be repeated. Pam and I continue to present, but in a much broader arena.   She is passionate and respectful when sharing information with advocates, law enforcement, prosecutors and all that intersect with sexual assault survivors.  As one who has seen firsthand how she has devoted herself to sharing this knowledge, I am proud to stand by her side.

I believe healthcare has a critical role to play in interrupting and turning around the ripple effects of violence in people's lives. I’ve seen Pam Dewitt-Meza deliver highly effective presentations on working with victims and how victim experiences should drive our system responses. She has the experience and vision to lead this change.
