Dr. RJ also has a special interest in treating trauma in victims of child sex trafficking, and has partnered with two local Senators to eradicate this widespread atrocity.

In 2015, Dr. RJ was appointed by Chairman John Eaves of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners to play an integral role on a task force to end Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children. The task force has had monumental success and was recently applauded during a publicly broadcasted board meeting by the bi-partisan Board of Commissioners for their work.
