Migrant and immigrant farm workers face daunting obstacles to good health. Low income levels, occupational and agricultural hazards, and an unfamiliarity with the American health care system are just some of the difficulties these workers face. Migrant and Immigrant Health Conference, - a two-day conference for food producers, advocates, educators, and policy makers who work or interact with migrant and immigrant farmworkers - will provide important information on agricultural and community health and safety issues, and effective health and safety programs for migrant and immigrant farmworkers and their families.
