Library & Resource Center

Welcome to the National Center for Farmworker Health Resource Center. The NCFH Resource Center serves migrant health professionals across the country by providing them with a wealth of information right at their fingertips. The Resource Center functions as a clearinghouse and library that allows migrant health professionals access to over 5,000 different farmworker related materials through our online library collection. These materials include a special collection of everything from historic farmworker documents to legislation to current research on topics such as HIV/AIDS, occupational health, demographics, and pesticides. In addition, the collection includes a wide array of patient educational materials printed in English and Spanish on over hundreds of health topics. Newly updated information can be found in the NCFH Topical Health Alerts page which is posted quarterly and provides information on research, patient education materials, and resources over specific health topics as it relates to the farmworker population.

The Resource Center also hosts two NCFH produced bi-monthly publications: Health Tips, a bilingual low literacy newspaper distributed to farmworkers and The Migrant Health Newsline, a newsletter tailored to the needs of individuals working in migrant health.

Also available through the NCFH Resource Center are a multitude of promotional items that help support several NCFH programs and causes. Of particular significance, is the NCFH Commemorative Artwork Series, a collection of over twenty years of farmworker themed artwork which is available for purchase, with proceeds going to support the Migrant Health Scholarship Program. In addition, the Migrant Health Research E-group provides support and connectivity, which helps keep researchers, clinicians, and students in the loop on new happenings in farmworker related research.
