This webinar will focus on migrant and immigrant farmworkers, particularly Latino workers, given that they comprise a large share of the agricultural workforce. As the demographic composition of many rural communities changes, it will be imperative for health professionals to understand the unique health and cultural challenges associated with serving their changing patient population. During this webinar, we will define who are migrant and immigrant farmworkers; discuss physical, behavioral, and social health characteristics of these workers; discuss available resources; and assist participants in working with diverse patients. 

At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to: 
1. define who are migrant and immigrant farmworkers in the U.S. 
2. understand some of the physical, behavioral, and social health challenges found among 
migrant and immigrant farmworkers 
3. know how to access resources to serve migrant and immigrant farmworkers
