New Plan for Farmworker Health

The Monterey County herald reports on a 3-year, $25 million community-building health initiative across 10 areas "with large agricultural and farmworker influences, from San Diego County to the Napa-Sonoma region." This project is initially funded by the California Endowment. "A recent endowment survey of 1,000 farmworkers throughout the state showed that 40 percent have never seen a doctor. About 50 percent have never visited a dentist." This project is primarily focused on prevention and health education.
