Migrant Education Health Program, 1992. Final Report.
Colorado State Dept. of Health, Denver.
The Colorado Migrant Health Program recruits, hires, trains, and supervises seasonal health practitioners in summer migrant education schools throughout the state. The health services provided include comprehensive health screening of all migrant school enrollees, treatment and follow-up for identified health problems, preventive dental services, and health education. Health education and counseling takes place not only at the school site but also during school family nights and in homes. School health providers work closely with local migrant health staff and local providers to assure quality, comprehensive health care for migrant students. Local migrant education staff and local health providers assure that any needed follow-up is provided after the summer program ends. This report contains the following sections: (1) health findings, changes, and highlights of the 1992 program; (2) health program overview; (3) health status of migrant education students; (4) health education curriculum and activities; (5) financial resources; and (6) plans for 1993. The appendix contains data tables that outline by school site the incidence and follow-up of specific medical and dental problems. (KS)
