UPAP Participates in Migrant Farm Worker Clinics
Jun 21, 2021 10:05 AM
The Utah Physician Assistant Program (UPAP) yearly visits rural areas to perform Migrant Farm Worker Clinics, an outreach that provides valuable and quality healthcare to groups that are often not privileged to have available or affordable treatment and preventive training. The clinics provide pediatric physicals to migrant workers, helping to ensure that children and families across the state are healthy. The clinics have a rich tradition, as UPAP has been visiting these communities to provide healthcare support for over 25 years.
The clinic is just one of the many activities UPAP is busy with during the summer of 2021. In addition to the Migrant Farm pediatric clinics, members of the UPAP student body and faculty participate in the Salt Community Action Program, Maliheh Free clinic, and the Doctor’s Volunteer Clinic in St. George, on top of their regularly scheduled service learning activities and classes held in both Salt Lake and St. George campuses.
