Kansas State Dept. of Health, Topeka.
Services provided by the Western Kansas Migrant Health Project 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; and (7) supplemental food programs. In September 1971, the Project's sponsoring of VISTA Volunteers in western Kansas was phased out by VISTA Regional Office. Over the years, the project has found itself involved with various non-health problems. Such problem areas include: applying for social security numbers and benefits; obtaining birth certificates; and assisting with tax returns and welfare, Medicaid, and food stamp applications. This annual progress report covers the Project's activities from December 1, 1971 through November 30, 1972. Services provided by the Project are briefly summarized. Statistical data are given for the migrant population and the medical, dental, hospital, nursing, sanitation, and health education services. (NQ)
