MCN is committed to developing and supporting clinical leaders in migrant health. Clinical leaders serve as agents of change in their local community or on a national stage. The work they do creates better quality services for patients.
In 1990, the Migrant Clinicians Network established its Annual Unsung Hero Award as a way to honor one of the unrecognized clinicians in the field of migrant health. The Award winner receives an expense paid trip to the National Farmworker Health Conference.
Nominees for the Unsung Hero Award are distinguished by their demonstrated dedication to migrant health, participation in a variety of areas in migrant health care delivery, innovation in service delivery and prevention strategies, clinical leadership, and lack of previous recognition for their contributions to migrant health.
