Development of Planning Guidelines and Recommendations to Address Emergency Preparedness and Response Needs of Seasonal and Migrant Worker Populations.

Rural agricultural communities throughout the country have significant seasonal and migrant populations that typically are not included in population estimates.  Ensuring the health of these groups is clearly in the interest of rural communities as they seek to reduce the spread of infectious diseases and the burden of uncompensated hospital/clinic care. More

Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health Across the U.S. (REACH U.S.) Risk Factor Survey. The Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health Across the U.S. (REACH U.S.) program is the cornerstone of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) efforts to eliminate racial and ethnic health disparities. NORC conducts two projects related to CDC’s REACH U.S. program. NORC conducts an annual survey in 28 REACH U.S. grantee communities to provide quantitative data to measure progress toward eliminating racial and ethnic health disparities in several health priority areas. NORC also uses existing data and a literature review to assess the role of cultural tailoring and translation on grantees’ activities related to policy, system and environmental changes.  More

The study provides a comprehensive analysis of awareness among the U.S. public of health disparities that place a disproportionate burden of preventable disease and premature death on racial and ethnic minorities as compared to the rest of the U.S. population. More
