FARMWORKER HEALTH NETWORK
Farmworker Health Network
The Farmworker Health Network (FHN) is comprised of six organizations that are also National Cooperative Agreements funded through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to provide training and technical assistance to current and potential Migrant Health Center Programs. The FHN is committed to supporting the development of leadership within community and migrant health centers and increasing access to care for the farmworker population. We function as a trusted resource to health center staff and boards, helping them to fulfill their capacity building needs, and to incorporate service delivery options that are designed to enhance care to farmworkers and their families.
The Farmworker Health Network stands with everyone impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), especially health providers and patients from special and vulnerable populations. In a consolidated effort to bring you the latest updates, the FHN will be sending out a biweekly newsletter with resources and information to keep you informed and assist you in continuing to serve your patient population. Information related to this pandemic changes daily, so we encourage you to visit the CDC’s website for additional updates that may impact your specific service areas.
