Florida Migrant Health Project. Fifth Annual Progress Report, 1967-1968.
Florida State Board of Health, Jacksonville.
Migrant health activities carried on by 17 of the 18 Florida county health departments that are recipients of Federal grants for this purpose from the United States Public Health Service are detailed in this report. Data concerning the number of people treated, descriptions of the medical services available, and a narrative report are included for each project. The county projects described are those for Collier, Broward, Dade, Glades, Hendry, Highlands, Lee, Manatee, Martin, Orange, Palm Beach, Polk, Putnam, Flagler, Saint Lucie, Sarasota, and Seminole counties. Additional topics discussed include Florida's migrant project history, the migrant situation, the Migrant Service Referral System, project objectives for 1968, nutrition services to the migrant health project, the Florida migrant syphilis casefinding project, the migrant dental health program, the health education program, and future plans--the replacement of outmoded slides, the improvement of migrant housing, and the revision of the Health Service Indexes for the 11 participating states. It is concluded that there was, with few exceptions, a definite increase in the amount and variety of services rendered, the number of agricultural migrants brought into contact with these services, and the various activities carried on by migrant project personnel in Florida.
