[heading_2 type=”divider”]Community Outreach and Referral[/heading_2]
[subheading_3]Migrant and Seasonal Farm Worker Outreach[/subheading_3]In Collaboration with the Utah Farm Worker Program and the Utah Migrant and Seasonal Farm Worker Coalition (UMSFW) cooperating agencies, Community Health Connect works to improve access to health information and resources for migrant farm workers. This is accomplished by providing health education and screenings at approved work sites throughout Utah County, and by developing cultural and linguistically appropriate materials including maps, policies, and contact information for key service sites including the Payson Family Health Clinic. For more information contact Dodd Greer at 801.818.3016 or email@example.com.
[subheading_3]Utah County Dental Varnishing Project[/subheading_3]Community Health Connect partners with Intermountain Healthcare, the Utah County Health Department, and volunteers from local colleges to provide an oral health education program in Title I schools throughout Utah County. The project includes a presentation focused on oral hygiene through proper brushing and flossing, and encourages children to eat healthy foods that are good for their teeth. Each child receives a dental kit with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss. All children having prior parental consent are given an application of fluoride varnish. Children without dental insurance who require further assistance insurance are referred to Community Health Connect, where they are linked with a volunteer dentist who can meet their needs.
