Here’s the link to the recent article published about the Migrant Farmworker Health Study in Nebraska: http://www.unmc.edu/news.cfm?match=15233
This study was conducted over the summer of 2013 by my team and I throughout five central Nebraska counties. We surveyed 200 Latino migrant farmworkers about their health status, stress, substance use, and depression. This pilot study was funded by the Central States Center for Agricultural Safety & Health (CS-CASH).
We are now in the dissemination phase where we want to share the findings with other stakeholders and brainstorm together about how we can improve lives for migrant farmworkers in our state.
