Assessment of the Eastern Stream of Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers -The “Assessment of the Eastern Stream of Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers” is conducted annually by the Regional Migrant Health Coordinators (RMHC) as a resource for Migrant Health Centers, agricultural communities and other programs that serve farmworkers. The Assessment gathers data about farmworkers from participants at the annual East Coast Migrant Stream Forum, a unique event that brings together front-line migrant health professionals, clinicians, administrators and advocates from the Migrant/Community Health Centers and community-based and faith-based organizations from 21 states along the East Coast. Since truly current information on farmworkers is hard to come by, the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Northeast Regional Coordinators host an activity to capitalize on the wealth of knowledge and experience present at the Forum. The data shared by participants is contained in this document. The Assessment of the Eastern Stream is an ongoing process, and we invite others in the field to share their observations and information with us throughout the year in order to keep it up-to-date. All data collected will be incorporated into the Regional Migrant Health Profiles compiled by each of the eight RMHCs in the country. For a copy of your region’s Profile, contact the Regional Coordinator in your area. Contact and other information about the RMHCs is available here
