Resource Summary: Today in the Golden State, farmworkers encounter numerous risks to their health and increased barriers to care before, during, and after migration. Health centers play a crucial role in addressing disparities in accessing COVID-19 services, education, and resources in special and vulnerable communities. Health centers that serve migrant farmworker and their families face unique challenges. Mobility results in poor continuity of care, and the health issues that fact migrant farmworkers and other mobile underserved populations are often magnified or compounded by their migratory lifestyle. In this webinar, we provide examples, tools, and best practices to help health centers better integrate health center teams (e.g., providers and community health workers) and external partnerships (e.g., community-based organizations and local government).

Resource Details: LEARNING OBJECTIVES Differentiate between the unique physical/behavioral/social/environmental needs of agricultural workers from those of other patient populations. Recognize hazardous conditions of working and living within the agricultural industry that factor into health outcomes for agricultural workers and their families. Identify more efficient and effective strategies to engage with agricultural worker patients, their families, and the staff serving them. Assess available resources and skills to strengthen community linkages for preventing and treating unique health care challenges of agricultural workers and their families.
