East Coast Migrant Stream Forum
October 17-19, 2013
The East Coast Migrant Stream Forum is a regional conference that is
dedicated to improving health outcomes and health care delivery to
migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families along the east
coast. It was created for health care providers, outreach workers and
front-line staff that are employed by federally-funded Migrant and
Community Health Centers. Since its inception, the conference has grown
into a training venue for staff from a variety of health, social and
legal agencies that serve and advocate for farmworkers as well as has been
duplicated along the West and Mid-West Streams.

Steve Shore Community Catalyst Award:
As a tribute to Steve Shore, NCCHCA's second Executive Director, and his
commitment to improving the health and well being of farmworkers, the
Steve Shore Community Catalyst Award honors others who share this same
vision. Each year, through a nomination and selection process, NCCHCA
will identify one individual, program or agency, directly or indirectly
involved in farmworker health, whose work has incited positive change in
the health and wellness of the farmworker community in the “host state”
or cluster of states where the East Coast Migrant Stream Forum is being
held that year. In 2013, the Forum’s host state is PUERTO RICO.
