There are profound health inequalities for migrant and seasonal farmworkers. In an effort to reduce the health information gap, East Carolina University (ECU) led an outreach program to help future leaders and college students from rural farmworker families access health information.
The project was a partnership between ECU's Joyner Library and Student Action with Farmworkers (SAF), a nonprofit farmworker advocacy organization. The program offered health-related training and technology access into a leadership/college pipeline program for farmworker youth in SAF's Levante Leadership Institute.
