I’m a family doc at a community clinic, and while I don’t treat many migrants, MCN’s work and the experience they share on their newsletter informs and improves my care of my patients.

MCN has a focused mission, is well respected in the field, and is efficient and effective with its use of resources. The staff are experienced, compassionate and articulate. Its current work advocating for addressing of medical needs of immigration detainees fills an important gap.

Migrant Clinicians Network is a great organization that connects migrants with continuing medical services, regardless of their migration patterns or industry. Their efforts to advance worker health and protections has helped move legislation forward and created the space for empowerment in communities around the US and abroad. Thanks for your work, MCN!

Migrant Clinicians Network plays an important role supporting the health network that is the enabling base for the under served and migrant workers across the nation. Providing the link that enables migrant populations to keep in contact with a multitude of care givers is amazing!

My Community Health Center (Salud Family Health Centers, Ft. Lupton CO) has been involved with MCN since its inception. The work that they do is vitally important for the health & well-being of the underserved migrant & agricultural farm workers.

I work with the Migrant Education Program in our school district and I truly appreciate all that you do and hope you can continue supporting migrant workers and their families. I go out and recruit migrant families in our district to offer supportive services, like daycare services, school registration assistance, translating etc. and being able to provide health information that is available through your website has been very helpful.

Thanks for all you do,

Migrant Clinicians Network goes over and beyond the call of duty to bring quality healthcare to a population that often has nobody else to look out for them. We have collaborated on a project that could not have happened without MCNI's gracious, barely compensated, participation.

Their work is great, providing information and resources for health professionals treating an underserved population. The newsletter is also great, as it covers various topics in healthcare relevant to migrant workers, and profiles people in the health field.

MCN has been an inspiration to replenish my energy & spirits in what can be very trying/exhausting work. They have improved & updated programs that help our clients receive better healthcare; which can be difficult for such a mobile population as the one that I work with. I have had reports of great successes in continuity of care with our vulnerable population, and they have always been very responsive when I had questions needing answers. I enjoy their assistance as well as their resources & trainings.
