Farm visits

We organize large group visits to farmworker camps in Benson twice a month from March to October. We meet at 5:30 at Harris Teeter in Meadowmont Shopping Center off Hwy 54 and carpool to Benson. We spend between 2-3 hours on-site, and then return to Chapel Hill by 10:30.

You do not need to be fluent in Spanish to come on a trip. All are welcome. And it is a great way to brush up on your Spanish skills!  Please bring a stethoscope and wear scrubs if you have them!  (If not, then just wear something comfortable!)  You will be taking vital signs, participating in patient interviews, and assisting in giving healthcare access to migrant farmworkers in North Carolina.
