Summary: As COVID-19 vaccination requirements continue changing across the country, access to vaccines and testing remains vital for the health of our agricultural communities. Many local Health Departments have mobile units that can provide free, on-farm services. The National Center for Farmworker Health (NCFH) will share an overview of strategies and resources on how to proactively ensure the well-being of your workforce. Presenters will show you how to find free mobile health services in your area and share available resources and tips on how to find health education materials that are culturally and linguistically appropriate for farmworkers.
Intended Audience: Agriculture producers, safety and health professionals, health care providers, other people working in agriculture.
Objectives: At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to…
- Recognize common health-related issues faced by migrant and seasonal farmworkers
- Identify and contact community health centers in their area by using NCFH’s Migrant Health Center Map and the federal HRSA Find a Health Center tool
- Locate culturally and linguistically appropriate health education materials for farmworkers
