Health Tips

 

 

Formally titled Farmworker News, Health Tips is a new, bilingual (Spanish/English), quarterly-published newspaper that is distributed throughout the U.S in both print and electronic copies.  It is intended to address those health concerns that are particularly prominent among the underserved Hispanic and/ or farmworker population.  With a national circulation distributed primarily through health centers, migrant education providers and Hispanic health and advocacy organizations, it focuses on important health tips for the individual as well as families.

Because these marginalized populations confront unique barriers when accessing health resources and services (some of which may include frequent mobility, English as a second language, an alternative culture, lower education attainment, prejudicial treatment, tenuous immigration status, etc.), the articles contained within the newspaper are sensitive to their needs. This includes the use of lay terminology and lower literacy content, in both English and Spanish.

The goal of Health Tips is to provide health information that will educate and encourage individuals to visit a health clinic or health provider for their healthcare needs.  The articles inform about serious illness that must be treated early, as well as the preventative care needed for a healthy lifestyle. Health Tips presents the latest, most updated information on health topics and also includes contact information for those seeking further information.
