The Place, Migration, and Health (PMH) network, a diverse group of researchers committed to understanding the links between migration processes and the health of migrants, their families.
The PMH website aims to generate and improve knowledge on the links between migration processes and the health of (im)migrants, their families, and their sending and receiving communities using across-national lens for research and policy.
The work of the researchers in the PMH network seeks to address knowledge gaps in areas critical for understanding the determinants of immigrant health and to inform intervention and policy opportunities to promote the the health of first-generation immigrants and their offspring.

To address the critical need for relevant information about the Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker (MSFW) population nationwide, the Migrant Clinicians Network developed an innovative project to test a set of methodologies for collecting and analyzing MSFW data. The methods used in this project will enhance planning capability for health services by gathering up-to-date, locally specific descriptive profiles of the MSFW population eligible for health care services and provide a mechanism to determine future trends that can affect health services delivery and formulation of health care plans, staffing decisions, outreach activities, preventive care emphases, budgeting and appropriate service hours. The methodologies tested employ systems that can be self-sustaining, providing continual, timely updates at a local level where such information is most useful. The systems foster collaboration between local service providers, encouraging Migrant Health Centers (MHCs) and others who serve the MSFW population to work together to share information which can be beneficial to all.

The National Agricultural Workers Survey (NAWS) is an employment-based, random survey of the demographic, employment, and health characteristics of the U.S. crop labor force. The information is obtained directly from farm workers through face-to-face interviews. Since 1988, when the survey began, over 53,000 workers have been interviewed. The survey is funded by the United States Department of Labor.
