José Navarro was excited for his new career after landing a job in the poultry industry. After five years on the job, 37 year-old Navarro began coughing up blood. He died soon after when his lungs and kidneys failed. His death triggered a federal investigation raising questions about the health risks associated with the use of toxic chemicals in poultry plants.

A User’s Guide for Implementation of Interprofessional Oral Health Core Clinical Competencies: Results of a Pilot Project
The National Nework for Oral Health Access has developed a user’s guide that provides a structure, options, and suggestions to help Health Centers develop programs to implement oral health competencies that integrate oral health care into primary care practice, which increases access to oral health care and improves the oral health status of the populations Health Centers serve.
For the first time, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has released an e-book version of its Guide to Clinical Preventive Services. The e-book is compatible with many readers, including Kindle, Nook, iBook, and Kobo. The new “Guide to Clinical Preventive Services, 2014” is a comprehensive resource that can help primary care clinicians and patients decide together which preventive services are right for a patient’s needs. It includes all active Task Force evidence-based recommendations since 2004, including 28 new and updated recommendations since the 2012 guide, in a format meant for use at the point of patient care. It also includes information about topics in development, clinical summary tables and additional resources.
This is the first of several resources MCN is developing to aid health centers in addressing the unique healthcare needs of migrant patients within the Patient Centered Medical Home. In addition, MCN is developing tools and resources health centers can utilize as they seek PCMH recognition.
Open Access means that patients can get same-day appointments for acute care needs and rapid access to routine care needs. This resource describes what Open Access looks like for migrant patients.
