Project Title & Description
Migrant Clinicians Network, Inc. FFY09-EE
The Migrant Clinicians Network will partner with PathStone (a not-for-profit community development and human services organization) to provide environmental health education to farm worker parents in Puerto Rico. The program will train the trainers who will then educate farm worker families and provide them with appropriate materials in Spanish. Family members will learn how to evaluate their children's risk of pesticide exposure and take necessary actions to reduce or eliminate that risk. The target audience is 180 farm worker families in rural and isolated communities in Puerto Rico (e.g., Utuado, Maricao, Adjuntas, Orocivis, Humacao and Santa Isabel).
