Save the Dates! NCFH will be offering its annual Orientation to Agricultural Worker Health and Agricultural Worker Classification and Verification webinars this fall. Both of these webinars are a great introduction for new health centers staff members and a refresher for more seasoned staff. Both webinars will be 1.5 hours in duration, which will include 1 hour presentation and 30 minutes of Q&A/peer-to-peer exchange of information.
Learn more about this special population that is so essential to our food system, and the Migrant Health Program that provides funds to Community and Migrant Health Centers across the country to care for Agricultural (Ag) workers and their families.
In addition to being a required reporting element for health center grantees in their UDS, accurate identification and classification of the Ag worker population is a critical step to success in increasing access to quality health care for this special population.
