This educational opportunity is for health center staff at all levels who work with special populations, including the migratory and seasonal agricultural workers (MSAW) population, or who have an interest in learning more.
This workshop offers a comprehensive orientation to the migrant health program in the United States. Whether you are new to the migrant health field or someone who needs a refresher, join us for a look into the fascinating world of the health care program for agricultural workers and their families. In this workshop, you will learn the history of agricultural migration, the structure of the migrant health program, and the people who make it work. Learn about agricultural workers, their health care needs, and the system of care that works for them. Acronyms such as DHHS, HRSA, BPHC, ONTASP, FHN, PCMH, and more will be deciphered, and available resources to make your work easier and better will be provided.
