Farmworker Family Health Program (FWFHP)  

The Farmworker Family Health Program is an inter-professional collaboration of the Ellenton Rural Health Clinic, located in Ellenton, Georgia, six Georgia Universities: Emory University, Georgia State University, Brenau University, Clayton College and State University, Central Georgia Tech, and University of Georgia, and other partners. The program addresses urgent primary healthcare needs of migrant farmworkers and their families. It has served over 15,000 individuals in its 24-year history.

How Does Emory Help?  

Utilizing students and faculty in the health professions, preventative and episodic health care is delivered in a two-week period each summer in an intensive outreach setting that also serves as part of the students’ clinical training. Participants include Emory School of Nursing (which prepares graduate nurse practitioners and undergraduate nurses in rural health), physical therapy programs, dental hygiene programs, and pharmacy programs. These students, who obtain service learning clinical hours in rural health, gain invaluable clinical and cultural insights while delivering important community-based health services to an underserved group where they are most needed and where the population is most accessible: in the fields, camps, and school setting.  

Why your Support Matters  

The Farmworker Family Health Program brings critical health services directly to farmworkers and their families during the summer months, when the migrant population is at its peak in this part of Georgia. Each year, vitally needed clinical services are provided to over 600 individuals who would otherwise go without healthcare services.

Farmworkers are among the most poverty stricken people in this country, yet they are responsible for the fruits and vegetables that are on our tables. We provide hygiene kits, boots, gently used clothing, and other items for workers and their families. Your support is needed to help raise funds to purchase these supplies. A gift of any amount will make a difference.
