Top 5 Reasons I ❤️️ MCN
We at Migrant Clinicians Network continue to push ahead for health justice for the mobile poor -- and the numbers show that our work is effective. This week, we’ve released our 2016 Year In Review, where we demonstrate the results of the hard work we’ve put in. It’s available in English and in Spanish. I love working for MCN because I get to support amazing people doing incredible and life-changing work. Our Year in Review highlights some of our best work. Here are the top five reasons we made a big difference in 2016.
Health Network closed 1,115 cases. Health Network, our bridge case management system, has an incredible track record for assuring that mobile patients can continue their treatment even if they move. In 2016, our very busy Health Network team completed 38% more cases than in 2014. That means significantly more people were able to get the treatment they need.

- 929 clinicians trained in Environmental and Occupational Health. Our Environmental and Occupational Health team partners with clinics around the country to assure that front line primary care providers get the training they need to effectively recognize and treat harmful environmental exposures and work-related injuries. Almost 1000 clinicians now better understand how to efficiently care for injured workers and report incidents when needed.
- Project ECHO. MCN launched two ECHO projects that enabled peer-to-peer networking and knowledge sharing and brought in experts in the field to quickly spread information and strategies to combat hot-button issues and developing concerns like Zika in Puerto Rican clinics.
- Knowledgeable staff. Our small but dedicated staff works very hard to bring all of MCN’s programs to the clinicians who need it most. With five offices around the country, MCN engages local communities as well as our national network to assure health justice for the mobile poor.
- Only nine percent of our budget goes to fundraising and administrative work. For decades, MCN has brought clinicians around the country timely and much-needed technical assistance, new resources and tools, case management, continuing education and other clinician education on emerging issues, and more -- all on a tight budget.
If this inspires you the way it does me, please consider making a contribution to MCN. We need your help. Now, more than ever, MCN needs the support of the health justice community so we can continue to bring you engaged and inspiring clinician education, fast and supportive technical assistance, and one-of-a-kind mobile patient continuity of care case management. Congratulations to my MCN colleagues -- here’s to a wonderful 2017!
