Five on Friday | March 31, 2017

MCN Five on Friday


April is upon us, and agricultural communities across the country are waking out of the slumber of winter and preparing for the spring planting. Out here in California, plenty of spring harvesting is under way, and the farms are already gearing up for summer weather. Regardless of where you reside, there are communities near you that rely on agricultural workers to get the orchards and fields ready for the year. Several of this week’s Five on Friday pieces are on topics that directly concern our nation’s agricultural workers, like new trainings for CHWs and the aftermath of Zika in Puerto Rico. What articles and resources did you see this week? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter.


  1. Jillian forwarded on a new musculoskeletal video training for outreach workers.

  2. Ricardo, Health Network Manager, sent out an article on an interactive map of health data broken down by neighborhood. What does your community look like? 

  3. Corey, Communications and Graphic Designer, forwarded on “Advocacy Group Defends Healthcare for All.”

  4. Last Friday was World TB Day -- what articles grabbed your attention? For Olivia, Health Network Associate, it was “One Little Girl Beat The Deadliest Form Of Tuberculosis. She Is Very Lucky.”

  5. Amy, Director of Environmental and Occupational Health, sent along an NPR piece, “Living With Zika In Puerto Rico Means Watching, Waiting And Fearing Judgment,” which features Dr. Carmen Zorrilla, a member of MCN’s External Advisory Board.


Have a safe and healthy weekend.
