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.
