No More Sour Grapes: Promoting Health and Equity for Agricultural Workers – Conference Call
No More Sour Grapes: Promoting Health and Equity for Agricultural Workers February 9, 2012
Co-sponsored with SAFSF and GIH
Nearly 70 years after John Steinbeck documented the fate of agricultural workers in The Grapes of Wrath, we continue to neglect the population that helps to feed our country. Farmworkers have alarming rates of occupational fatalities, chronic diseases, and exposures to agricultural chemicals, making them one of our nation’s most vulnerable populations. Join this one-hour webinar to discuss concrete strategies for tackling health and equity problems in the agricultural workforce, and opportunities to connect these efforts with philanthropic initiatives designed to improve rural health care, reduce racial and ethnic disparities, increase access to healthy foods, and build strong communities.
