Streamline Summer 2016: Top Four Reasons to Read Up!
It’s here! The Summer 2016 edition of Streamline, Migrant Clinicians Network’s quarterly clinical publication on migrant health, made it to mailboxes all around the country! Didn’t get a copy? You can read it online here (and be sure to send your name and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to receive a paper copy of the free journal in the future). Here are some reasons to read up:
Reviewed by Migrant Clinicians: This issue was reviewed by members of our newly expanded Streamline External Editorial Board. We are very proud to have these six members join our editorial team to ensure that the articles that reach you are relevant, well presented, and thoroughly researched. The External Editorial Board members are frontline clinicians, advocates, and researchers with expertise in the health issues and environmental and occupational exposures experienced by mobile patients, agricultural workers, and other medically underserved populations. Rather than review the entire issue, our new Board members review the articles or sections that are relevant to their areas of expertise and interest. The Board may also suggest future content matter or contribute relevant content. We welcome our new Streamline External Editorial Board members! Read more about them on our Streamline External Editorial Board webpage.
