MCN Five on Friday


The warmer days are here! Fields across America are swelling with the produce that will make up our summer picnics and graduation barbeques. We’re looking forward to a relaxing June weekend as we round out another very full week here at Migrant Clinicians Network. Here are some resources and updates that we found useful and insightful -- hope you do, too.


  1. Del, Director of International Projects, Research, and Development, forwarded on an op-ed: Haitian Nationals Will Receive Temporary Protected Status for 6 More Months – But Then What?

  2. Amy, Director of Environmental and Occupational Health, recommends An Approach to Assess the Burden of Work-Related Injury, Disease, and Distress, newly published in the American Journal of Public Health

  3. Karen, thought we’d like to read “How America's 'ground-zero' for modern slavery was cleaned up by workers' group,” a piece on CNN about the Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ Fair Food Program.

  4. Alma, Senior Program Manager of Environmental and Occupational Health, followed up her recent ECHO learning collaborative on DEET with the CDC’s pages on how to prevent mosquito bites using CDC-recommended repellents, in English and Spanish.

  5. Claire, Writer and Editor, shared numerous articles relating to climate action, including: “2016 was the year solar panels finally became cheaper than fossil fuels. Just wait for 2017.”


Have a safe and healthy weekend.
