- Farmworkers have: Immediate access to telemedicine resulting in early detections, less exposure, and less missed time from work.
- Access to healthcare resources and health information
- Access to English as Second Language (ESL) classes and other educational opportunities
- Ability to connect with family and friends decreasing feelings of isolation and loneliness
