Five on Friday | July 28, 2017: New NACHC Health Center Chartbook and the Women Confronting California’s Farm Conditions

MCN Five on Friday


Hot July evenings lend themselves well to an iced tea and a paperback.  What’s on your summer reading list? Has a health justice title made the cut? Let us know on Facebook! In the meantime, here are a few good reads, recommended by MCN staff.


  1. Theressa, Training and Technical Assistance Coordinator: “Take a look at this new resource from NACHC -- the Community Health Center Chartbook -- it’s pretty cool.”

  2. Corey, Communications and Graphics Designer, shared “The women confronting California’s farm conditions: Female farmworkers face sexual assault, pesticide exposure and low wages,” a focus on Lideres Campesinas from High Country News.

  3. Jillian, Director of Professional Development and Education, shared California Occupational Health Branch’s updated free online CME course on work-related coccidioidomycosis -- also known as Valley Fever --  for health care providers.

  4. Jessica, Grant Writer, shared the Reuters article “US allows fast processing again for some H-1B visa applications.”

  5. Claire, Writer and Editor, discovered that a recent New York Times article that mentioned MCN has been translated or commented on in multiple languages, including Spanish, Portuguese, and Hebrew.


Have a safe and healthy weekend.
