Henderson County Migrant Family Health Service; 1970 Migrant Health Project, Annual Progress Report.
Henderson County Migrant Council, Inc., Hendersonville, NC.
The Henderson County Migrant Family Health Service has served migrants coming into the area for 8 years, and the need for service continues although there are no plans to extend this service after migrant health grant assistance is denied. The primary objective of the project is to provide necessary facilities and services to the migrant and his dependents at no charge. An advisory committee, composed of migrants and representatives of the Henderson County Migrant Council, assists the project director. Family medical clinics are held 3 nights each week in a temporary building. Each patient is examined, and necessary drugs are prescribed by the clinician. Field visits by nurses follow clinical examinations. Referrals to hospitals or to private physicians' offices are made in difficult cases. The health educator works directly under the project director to try new approaches to meet the needs of health education. In the document, along with a textual summary, tables provide statistics (from June 1 through November 15, 1970) on number of migrants served, their conditions or diseases, and the types of services provided.
