Five on Friday: Farmworker Shortage & Dialysis for the Undocumented
August is here! Only a few more days of peace before the rush of back-to-school madness. As you settle into your quiet August weekend, take a moment to read some of the news articles, reports, and opinion pieces that MCN staff sent around this week. What did you read that we should include? Let us know on Facebook.
Amy, Director of Environmental and Occupational Health, is reminded that farmworkers feed us all and their labor is essential to the food we eat with an article on farmworker shortages.
Alma, Senior Program Director, forwarded us “Puerto Rico's Wounded Medicaid Program Faces Even Deeper Cuts.”
Saul, Senior Health Network Data Specialist, sent in “Undocumented immigrants on dialysis forced to cheat death every week.”
Amy also shared, “Migrant child died after release from detention, attorneys group alleges” from the Washington Post.
Candace, Specialist in Clinical Systems & Women’s Health, shared the Immigrant Child Health Toolkit from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Have a safe and healthy weekend!
