National Farmworker Health Day

Each year the second week of August is dedicated to recognizing the services and contributions of Community, Migrant, Homeless and Public Housing Health Centers in providing access to affordable, high quality, cost-effective health care to medically vulnerable and underserved people in the U.S.
