Florida Migrant Health Project. Sixth Annual Progress Report, 1968-1969.
Florida State Board of Health, Jacksonville.
Migrant health activities carried on by the 17 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 Broward, Collier, Dade, Highlands, Hendry, Glades, Lee, Manatee, Martin, Orange, Palm Beach, Polk, Putnam, Flagler, Saint Lucie, Sarasota, and Seminole. Additional topics discussed include Florida's migrant project history, the migrant situation, the Migrant Health Referral System, nutrition services to the migrant health project, and general sanitation exhibits--the Sanitary Code of Florida, House Bill No. 269, and the Camp Inspection Form. Future plans include increasing the slide and film library and reaching more migrants with the message of the importance of good health practices. It is concluded that although Polk and Manatee counties were separated from the project during the fall of 1968, there was an increase in the number of services rendered in all categories and an increase in the number of migrants seen or brought into contact with public health workers.
