MCN Monograph Series. Diabetes: Addressing a Chronic Disease in a Mobile Population. Eng/Spn

The Migrant Clinicians Network’s (MCN) mission is to promote the health of farmworkers by providing a framework for professional development to clinicians and other healthcare providers. MCN responds to the expressed needs of clinicians in the field who serve farmworker families, the issues voiced by farmworkers themselves as they are interviewed and known by the representative members of MCN, and the strategic initiatives of the federal and public health communities as they impact migrant health. Monographs are one mechanism used by MCN to address gaps between medical care knowledge and migrant health practice. Acute, chronic, and preventive care needs of farmworkers require the clinician and health care community to recognize interrelationships between biological risk factors, environmental exposures, social and cultural components, political and economic realities, and occupational characteristics.
