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.
- 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?
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
