Abstract

This article explores possible interventions to address the expressedhealth and medical care concerns of a pilot sample of Mexican-origin farmworkers in Santa Barbara County and research-based assessments of health needs of the population. Using a medical and political ecology model that situates the US farmworkers and dependents in this study asan economically peripheral community within the policentric global economy, the article explores the possibilities and problems of melding the aims-and methods of scientific intervention research with those ofsocial interventions at the community level and beyond. Health problems addressed include recurrent chemical exposure, the prevalence and treatment of tuberculosis, and maternal and newborn health. Health careproblems discussed include issues surrounding access to care, effective treatment, and racism and cultural insensitivity in public health care.
