The Conference for Agricultural Worker Health was like none other that came before it. Last year, the conference was canceled because of COVID, this year attendees experienced it virtually. This is the only conference dedicated solely to the health and well-being of America’s migratory and seasonal agricultural workers and their families, so it was important to carry on, even if folks couldn’t gather under the same roof. We hope to make this happen next year.
Front and center on the conference agenda was honoring colleagues who have advanced the health center mission and whose contributions have vastly improved the lives of America’s migrant and seasonal agricultural workers. We presented both the 2020 and 2021 awards to health centers and the men and women within their walls who inspire us with their service and compassion and lead this nation to more equitable health care.
