Emory Farmworker Project

Life-changing care for Georgia's migrant workers

Through the Emory Farmworker Project, our faculty and trainees provide free on-site health care to more than 2,000 farmworkers and their families. These community members lack access to even basic medical care, and our volunteers gain experience in providing culturally sensitive, compassionate care for a wide range of health concerns to the people who need it most.
