Five on Friday Immigration Enforcement Impacts Farmers


In case you missed it: MCN was abuzz this week with the the publication of a Health Network case study in the New England Journal of Medicine. Head over there to listen to an interview with Laz about social distance and migrant care. A lot happened in health justice this week, and here’s a small sampling of articles that the MCN team shared for our weekly Five on Friday.



1 bilingual app for pesticide safety


Amy rejoiced in this new app, PestiSeguro, which provides pesticide handling and safety information in Spanish and English. It doesn’t require an internet connection, so farmworkers can access it in the fields.
