Since the early 2000s the UConn Migrant Farm Worker Clinic have annually provided between 300 and 600 migrant farm workers with primary care screenings, oral health screenings, distribution of medications for mild and self-limited conditions, as well as preventive health education. The University of Connecticut (UConn) and the Connecticut Area Health Education Centers (CT AHEC) Program provids service to migrant farm workers to overcome barriers to health care by conducting medical and dental screenings on site at farm worker barracks free of charge. The UConn Migrant Farm Worker Clinics operate annually from June to October offering diagnostic and treatment options for a variety of conditions, both acute and chronic.
