Western Kansas Migrant Health Project: 7th Annual Progress Report, 1970.
Kansas State Dept. of Health, Topeka.
Basic services which the Western Kansas Migrant Health Project provides migrant families include: (1) remedial schools and day care centers; (2) health education; (3) housing and sanitation; (4) nursing services; (5) medical and dental services; (6) hospital services; (7) supplemental food programs; and (8) driver education. During 1970, the communities became actively involved in seeking solutions for their problems. VISTA Volunteers added new dimensions to the Project by dealing with a variety of problems, not specifically of a health nature (i.e., legal assistance, education, and housing). This annual progress report covers the Project's activities from December 1, 1969 through November 30, 1970. The basic services are briefly summarized; community action and support is briefly discussed. Contributions made by the VISTA project are included. Statistical data pertaining to the migrant population and medical, dental, hospital, nursing, sanitation, and health education services are included in the appendices. (NQ)
