Happy Farmer

The purpose of our Farm Worker Program is to provide services that are accessible, coordinated, and address barriers that inhibit health. Our Outreach Manager and Community Health Workers provide services to the Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers in our community. Providing services to farmworkers requires that services inside and outside the clinic be accessible and coordinated. For example, enabling services to help address barriers that farmworkers face when trying to access healthcare. We have found that programs, like our own, that are community-based, culturally and linguistically appropriate, and that offer comprehensive and continuous services, increase the likelihood that the farmworker will get needed services and not be lost to follow-up. Ultimately, our outreach efforts increase the accessibility, acceptability, and appropriateness of available health services to migrant and seasonal farmworkers in our area. Outreach is considered an integral part of any healthcare system and it is no different here at MCHP. In addition to getting farmworkers to health centers, our community health workers play a key role in connecting farmworker communities to health services.
