This organization provides an important service for a population of people who previously had a difficult time receiving quality medical services, sometimes just because the individuals did not have their medical records.

MCN has been a strong advocate for providing services to diagnose and treat persons with or at risk for tuberculosis. They have been leaders in getting needed services to the underserved population of migrant farm workers in the United States.

Migrant Clinicians Network really works to advocate for migrant workers in the US and all over the world. They are truly dedicated to educating migrant workers on the risks of their jobs and helping them receive the care they deserve. They do so by working to better educate the clinicians who devote their lives to serving these workers. MCN is a great organization that really stands behind the population they serve.

This organization does fantastic work helping individuals who are otherwise overlooked by society by providing healthcare options, dedication, and unwavering loyalty to the patients they serve. Without MCN there would be many people not receiving the proper medical attention they require. Excellent work friends!!

MCN continues to amaze me with every passing year with the organization's mission and effective programs. Anytime that health care access or migrant workers come up in a conversation, I love taking the opportunity to talk about MCN and all the incredible things the organization does. MCN has worked to support health care providers and the migrant workers they serve through education, resource development, and technical assistance for thirty years. The world is simply a better place with Migrant Clinicians Network's inspiring and diligent efforts!!

I support MCN because they provide help and services to the people on the lowest rungs of the economic ladder. They do the necessary jobs most people don't want to do, and are the most easily exploited due to their lack of education and even what most people would consider the most basic needs. MCN provides healthcare and community support. I applaud their ongoing efforts to take care of the least of our brothers. Thank you, MCN!

I serve on MCN's advisory board because of its superb work in addressing the need of migrant workers for continuity of health care through its Health Network Program. Through this program and its proven training programs for health providers, MCN makes a real difference in the lives of thousands of migrant workers and the clinicians who serve them.

MCN has provided essential comments and organization for the EPA Worker Protection Standards for pesticides. Having a medical voice in this rulemaking was powerful.

MCN has also supported meaningful rest breaks in Washington State by participating in an amicus brief submitted to the Washington Supreme Court.

Finally, MCN is participating in efforts to educate the Washington State legislature about the hazards of pesticide drift.

I am a proud former farmworker and current Board Member. Migrant Clinicans Network's staff and leadership is truly inspired by the health needs of farmworkers, not just in one part of the state, but across the United States. It is difficult to provide expert training and competent care for a mobile and vulnerable population that constantly moves across state and international borders, but MCN takes on the challenge. They take on important issues like domestic violence, pesticide exposure, competent and culturally appropriate care, just to name a few, and make it part of their mission to create positive change. A perfect example is MCN staff ensuring the proper management of TB care for a specific patient not only while he was in the U.S., but also ensuring this patient followed his treatment when he returned to his country in Central America, and throughout additional migrations thereafter until his TB treatment was complete. This example shows both MCN's dedication and their innovative approach to health care. I am proud of MCN and all that they do!

Farmworkers toil ceaselessly and their labor helps put food on our tables. Their low wages and lack of insurance benefits help make that food more affordable. It also means this population lacks the economic means to access our more traditional and expensive healthcare system. Agricultural work is also extremely hazardous with the highest rates of workplace fatalities, as well as exposures to pesticides, heat, machines, and poor ergonomics and long hours. Fortunately, Migrants Clinicians Network is there to provide a range of critical services for the medically under-served, and for the health professionals who seek to improve access to care. Thank you MCN for being a source of health justice for the mobile poor!

I used to work at MCN! I know them to be a caring and knowledgeable group of individuals!
They have always been at the forefront of healthcare for Migrant Farmworkers. From Domestic violence to TB, their expertise in these fields is superb. They host yearly conferences so that doctors and nurses can be kept up to date on new ways of helping migrant farmworkers and the specific health issues they are affected by.
I consider them a great group of individuals who CARE about others!

I joined the field of agricultural health and safety immediately before finishing my PhD in cultural anthropology. In turn, I was immediately introduced to Amy Liebman and all that she has done as a leader within Migrant Clinicians Network. This is a group with the hearts and minds to make a difference in the lives of those that have come to this country in pursuit of happiness. They understand the science of health, cultural diversity, and the challenges of US immigration. I have collaborated with them and plan on continuing to do so throughout my career. I suggest others to do the same!

The editors of the peer-reviewed Journal of Agromedicine appreciate the contributions of MCN staff and collaborators who play key roles as authors, reviewers and associate editors. Their work raises the profile of our nation's agricultural immigrant workforce in the scientific literature, and helps make the Journal a credible source of articles focused on immigrant safety and health issues. - Scott Heiberger, managing editor, Journal of Agromedicine
