Colorado Rural Health Program. Annual Report, June 1, 1970-June 1, 1971.
Colorado State Dept. of Health, Denver.
Narrative and statistical data on the Colorado Rural Health Program are presented in this 1970-71 annual report. Objectives of the program were to develop, augment, and improve health care services to rural (including migrant) agricultural workers and their families; to develop, expand, and improve existing programs; and to establish and maintain lines of communication with other agencies involved in the health, education, and welfare of rural workers. Separate sections of the report cover the following areas: interagency commitment, dental services, medical services, environmental health, and nursing services. Some of the major changes in the program for this reporting period included affiliation with the Colorado Migrant Council, extension of the program to include non-migrant rural agricultural workers, and implementation of the "one-roof" concept (the idea of consolidating all services in 1 center). The types and amounts of care given to agricultural workers during the reporting period are presented (by county or region) in both narrative and tabular form. (PS)
