Netherlands-based health technology company Royal Philips has partnered with the Emory University Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing and other Georgia universities and local partners to support the Farm Worker Family Health Program (FWFHP) in Southwest Georgia.

The FWFHP delivers preventive and episodic care to temporary farm workers and their children in medically underserved areas.

This programme aims to improve access to primary care for farm workers and their families in several Georgia counties.

FWFHP director Erin Ferranti said: “This programme can only thrive through partnership with innovative organisations focused on health equity, and Philips’ support not only helped us during this year’s two-week FWFHP, but will support the farm workers throughout the year through the Ellenton Clinic.”

As part of this collaboration, Emory nursing students will gain hands-on experience using Philips technologies, including the Lumify tablet-based ultrasound and the HeartStart AED, while providing care to the farm worker community.

Philips North America chief region leader Jeff DiLullo said: “The Farm Worker Family Health Program is a great example of a community mobilising to extend access to care to a vital and vulnerable population.
