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 serve approximately one million migratory and seasonal agricultural workers and their families. However, this represents less than 25% of the estimated number who reside in the country. We must do better, we can and we are!
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 calls on all migrant health centers nationwide to increase the number of new migratory and seasonal agricultural workers by expanding the campaign beyond the health center through formal partnerships and collaborations with other community-based organizations serving the population—migrant and seasonal head start programs, farmworker housing units, migrant education, churches and synagogues, farmers and growers and other partners. Through this concerted effort, we are confident we can reach our goal to serve 2 million agricultural workers and their families.
PCAs, HCCNs, and health centers all across the country have enthusiastically embraced the campaign by developing more specific community outreach strategies and effective utilization of community health workers and promotoras(es) to reach the population. Train-the-Trainer program curricula has been developed to train front desk/patient intake staff are being trained to more accurately identify who is a “migratory” or “seasonal” agricultural worker and family member during the patient intake process resulting in more accurate reporting in the UDS reporting system.
Come and join us in Albuquerque, NM May 6-8, 2019 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.
