New in 2013
In response to changing demographics, federal priorities, and new research on the evolving role of Community Health Workers (CHWs), we have broadened the scope of our annual Western Migrant Stream Forum to address the role of CHWs working with migrant/seasonal farmworkers as well as other populations.
Join us to explore:
- How population health interventions benefit migrant/seasonal farmworker populations
- The integral role of the CHW in improving population health
- The growing diversity of roles, responsibilities and reach of the CHW profession
- Sustainable models for financing CHW programs and integration into the care team
Read a personal reflection by Tina Castañares, MD, longtime supporter of the Western Forum, on the new scope for the Forum.
