South Georgia Farmworker Health Project 20th Anniversary Event

The South Georgia Farmworker Health Project (SGFHP) of Emory University’s Physician Assistant Program began in 1996 out of a trunk of a car with one faculty member and four students interested in migrant health issues.  Today, SGFHP is a hallmark of the Emory PA Program having served over 25,000 patients.  This year, we celebrate our 20th year of service to this community.

Agriculture is the largest economic driver in Georgia. Many crops need to be picked by hand and these hands belong to farmworkers who have no access to healthcare. Our long history with the many growers in South Georgia has built trust, respect and recognition of our mutual goal of keeping workers healthy.  A healthier community benefits everyone.
