The Novo Foundation recently gifted Sun River Health $750,000 to aid in care for migrant and seasonal farmworkers at our Goshen and New Paltz Health Centers. The majority of the agricultural worker patients we serve live below the federal poverty level. Due to low income and harsh environmental conditions, farmworkers turn to Sun River Health with multiple health problems, many of which began as minor or manageable conditions but have progressed, because of neglect, to more serious or chronic illnesses. The most common issues facing this population are dental and periodontal disease, poorly controlled diabetes, and hypertension. The $750,000, which will be used throughout the next three years, will allow Sun River Health to continue providing high-quality primary and preventative care for this vulnerable population.
