Migrant Health Class in Spring

A migrant health class, ES 416, is being offered this spring. The purpose of the class is to present an overview of major health and health care issues related to migrant communities in the United States. From an ecological perspective, students gain an understanding of the theories and realities about migration and the migration-health relationship. In particular, the situation of migrant and seasonal farm workers in the Pacific Northwest is analyzed. Specific topics include: assimilation and acculturation, access to care, protective practices (the so-called Latino paradox), migrant health centers and community health workers, environmental and occupational issues, and immigrant families. The course will investigate relevant policy and ethical issues that surround migration and health. For students pursuing a Medical Humanities Certificate, this course can count toward completion of the electives in the Medical Humanities Certificate.

Class meets: Fridays, 10:00 am – 1:50 pm, April 2 – June 8. For more information, contact Dr. López-Cevallos.
