Farmworkers suffer from higher rates of occupational injury, disability, and chronic health conditions than the general public. With much of our US food and fiber supply reliant on farmworkers, disabling conditions can greatly affect the agricultural labor force. Service providers of farmworkers require knowledge and resources to address their needs and provide assistance. This course is designed to educate service providers of farmworkers on how to identify challenges and improve services for farmworkers with disabilities and chronic health conditions.
- Examine the needs of farmworkers with disabilities in the U.S.
- Identify services available for farmworkers and their families
