South Georgia Farmworkers Health Project

South George Farmworkers Health ProjectSeven Doctor of Physical Therapy students, two physical therapy faculty members and one physical therapist from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta joined the South Georgia Farmworkers Health Project (SGFHP) lead by Emory’s Physician Assistant program. The students and faculty spent one week around Valdosta this summer participating in mobile medical clinic teams to serve transient and seasonal farmworkers in community-based sites. One student summed up the essence of our current service learning experiences. “The SGFHP brings together healthcare workers from all different disciplines and gives us the opportunity to learn from each other in a setting that is far more educational than any classroom.”

Emory DPT students set up the blue “PT Tent” near farmworker housing for an afternoon SGFHP clinic. Other tents house PAs, physicians, and social workers on the team.
