Jemison Talks to MPBN about Health Care for Migrant Workers

John Jemison, water quality and soil specialist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke with the Maine Public Broadcasting Network about the need for affordable health care for Maine’s migrant workers. Jemison said farm labor can be hard on health and its workers are notoriously underinsured and underserved. As part of a UMaine Extension project two years ago, Jemison learned one of the biggest issues farm workers face is access to affordable health care. He says the idea of a mobile health clinic is intriguing but wonders how it will be paid for.
