Innovative Program Protects Migrant Workers Health

Family Health La Clinica Community Health Center has created a statewide coronavirus education and outreach program targeting migrant workers.


The Education and Empowerment for Wisconsin Migrant Seasonal Agriculture Workers project has provided COVID-19 education, screening, and testing to nearly 1,500 workers at farms, canneries, housing sites, and other agricultural worksites across the state.


The project is funded by the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment at the Medical College of Wisconsin and the State of Wisconsin and has been done in collaboration with the Wisconsin Farmworkers’ Coalition. The project is slated to run through 2020.
