The Conference for Agricultural Worker Health is the only conference dedicated solely to the health and well-being of America’s migratory and seasonal agricultural workers. Community and Migrant Heath Centers currently serve approximately 900,000 migratory and seasonal agricultural workers and their families. However, this represents less than 25% of the estimated number who reside in the country.
The National Association of Community Health Centers in collaboration with the National Center for Farmworker Health, Community and Migrant Health Centers, State and Regional Primary Care Associations, the Farmworker Health Network and other key stakeholders have launched Ag Worker Access 2020 Campaign! The campaign has called on all migrant health centers nationwide to increase the number of new farmworker patients by 15% each year for the next five years.
Join the conference to learn more about the campaign, what progress has been made, share effective strategies designed to reach this population and network with your colleagues who have dedicated their lives to serving America’s migratory and seasonal agricultural population.
