PCOM South Georgia Students to Assist at Migrant Clinic

June 10, 2021

Student volunteers from PCOM South Georgia will take part in an immersive, clinical education opportunity June 14-25 at Ellenton Farms Migrant Clinic. The clinic, located 10 miles from Moultrie, Georgia, provides care to migrant farm workers and their families—more than 3,000 unique patients per year.

This year, PCOM South Georgia students will assist with non-medical needs including logistical support and other activities.

The clinic is offered through the Farm Worker Family Health Program (FWFHP). The FWFHP, now in its 28th year, is held each summer and has served more than 15,000 individuals to date. The FWFHP provides health profession students with an opportunity to work with an interprofessional healthcare team to provide critical health services.
