Midwest Stream Forum for Agricultural Worker Health
March 28 - 30, 2022
Sheraton Austin Hotel at the Capitol
For the first time ever, the three Regional Stream Forums hosted by the National Center for Farmworker Health (NCFH), North Carolina Community Health Center Association (NCCHCA), and Northwest Regional Primary Care Association (NWRPCA) joined together to host a Virtual National Stream Forum. This virtual event took the place of the 2020-2021 in-person Stream Forum events.
The Virtual Forum was held on March 22–26, 2021 and two follow-up sessions on May 24-25, 2021 for education and training, information and resource sharing, coalition building, and program and policy development for community-centered health professionals and their partners. And, there were no registration fees!
Attendees of the annual Forum include multiple disciplines, such as health care providers, administrators, board members, health educators, lay health professionals including Community Health Workers and Promotores(as), students, researchers, agricultural workers, and co-sponsors. All are invited to assemble and share new ideas, learn innovative strategies, and enhance their skills in health care delivery for the migrant and seasonal agricultural worker population.
Individuals and organizations working with the Agricultural Worker community, as well as rural populations and/or other vulnerable populations, also find benefit in the educational content offered. With the purpose of supporting champions in increasing quality and access to care for Agricultural Workers, the Forum emphasizes the exchange of information on model programs, new resources and tools, and the latest research and trends in agricultural work.
