Agricultural Health Program

The Agricultural Health Program is funded through the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Primary Healthcare. This program provides agricultural workers and anyone in their household with access to affordable health care. Patients can access health care at Proteus clinic locations, as well as temporary mobile clinics on-site where they are working or living.

Health care clinics are scheduled in locations where farmworkers are working and living, during the hours when workers are available for services. In these locations, workers receive vital exams such as blood pressure, temperature, height and weight, and blood profiling to check for anemia, cholesterol, and diabetes. All patients are able to have a complete physical exam.
