CHWs provide culturally and linguistically appropriate health education to Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Workers (MSAWs) on topics such as diabetes self-management and work with MSAWs to define and set SMART goals.
Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Workers (MSAW) are predominantly Hispanic. Family plays a significant role in this community's lives; they provide support, guidance, and encouragement. The family makeup of the Hispanic community goes beyond the traditional nuclear family. Households include cousins, aunts/uncles, grandparents, and sometimes family friends.
