Community Health Centers serve approximately 20% of the estimated 4.5 million Agricultural Workers in the United States. Over the past few years, hundreds of health center staff members, community health workers, clinicians, executives, consumer board members, and advocates have come together to develop more effective strategies to increase access to care for migrant and seasonal agricultural workers and their families. Migrant/Agricultural Worker Health Center grantees are critical to ensuring access to quality primary and preventive care for patients who might otherwise go without care.
Consider hosting one of the following events in recognition of Agricultural Worker Health Center Day this year:
- Host a mobile health screening and health fair event – organize an event on-site with partners in your community to reach agricultural workers onsite at their workplace.
- Visit the National Center for Farmworker Health to learn about the Ag Worker Access Campaign and its goal to increase the number of Agricultural workers and their families served in Community and Migrant Health Centers to 2 million
