COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH SERVICES FOR THE RURAL POOR.
LOGSDON, DONALD N.
SEVERAL WRITERS HAVE DEPICTED AGRICULTURAL MIGRANTS AS BEING ONE OF THE MOST DEPRIVED GROUPS IN OUR COUNTRY. HOWEVER, THE NON-MIGRANT AGRICULTURAL WORKERS, WHO FAR OUTNUMBER THE MIGRANTS, ALSO LIVE IN EXTREMELY POOR CIRCUMSTANCES AND ARE VIRTUALLY UNNOTICED BECAUSE THEY DO NOT DRAW ATTENTION THROUGH MIGRATION. BOTH OF THESE GROUPS ARE IN DIRE NEED OF COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH SERVICE, BUT ONLY THE MIGRANTS RECEIVE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF CARE. A COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH PROGRAM FOR THE RURAL POOR SHOULD INCLUDE--FAMILY HEALTH SERVICES, CLINICS, A HOSPITALIZATION PLAN, FAMILY ORIENTED NURSING, DENTAL CARE, HEALTH EDUCATION, NUTRITIONAL SERVICES, AND SOCIAL SERVICES. THESE RURAL HEALTH PROGRAMS SHOULD INVOLVE RURAL YOUTH IN SOME MANNER, SUCH AS THE CANDY STRIPERS, FOR ONLY THROUGH THIS KIND OF INVOLVEMENT WILL THERE BE LASTING BENEFIT. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL OUTLOOK CONFERENCE ON RURAL YOUTH, OCTOBER 23-26, 1967, WASHINGTON, D. C., SPONSORED JOINTLY BY THE U. S. DEPARTMENTS OF AGRICULTURE, HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND WELFARE, INTERIOR, AND LABOR, OEO, AND THE PRESIDENT'S COUNCIL ON YOUTH OPPORTUNITY. (ES)
