Migrant Health Program: New Jersey State Department of Health, 1971 Annual Report.
New Jersey State Dept. of Health, Trenton.
Project objectives and descriptions of 6 county migrant health projects are summarized and evaluated. The project services provided the migrant worker and his family included hospital, dental health, eye examination, nutrition, school health, maternal and child health, sanitation, and social services. Clinical and outreach activities in the project area were improved by fuller staffing of and an increase in the number of migrant clinics. As a result, evening dental clinic services were established in conjunction with each migrant clinic, interpreter service and transportation were increased to reach the maximum number of workers, and emergency medical care in the hospitals showed a remarkable decline. Environmental facilities for migrants are being steadily upgraded by legislative improvements, by interdepartmental planning, and by local health agency cooperation. Data by county and by service provided are shown in the tables. A related document is ED 058 995. (HBC)
