Faculty publications detail health challenges faced by Latina farmworkers

Cynthia Curl, an associate professor in the Department of Community and Environmental Health, Lisa Meierotto, an assistant professor in the School of Public Service, and Rebecca Som Castellano, an associate professor in the Department of Sociology, recently published three articles related to their research on health issues within the Latina community.

Their work identified lack of access to childcare, food insecurity, social isolation, long working hours, concerns about pesticide exposure, and lack of regulatory protections as primary challenges facing this population.
