AGRICULTURE IS A $69 BILLION INDUSTRY in Georgia, and may appear far removed from the asphalt and skyscrapers of downtown Atlanta. But Georgia State students help keep the farms running by caring for the migrant workers who pick the peppers, cantaloupes, cucumbers and other produce.
For the past 14 summers, graduate students from the Department of Physical Therapy have made the trek as part of the Farmworker Family Health Program, a cooperative program with Emory University, the University of Georgia and other colleges. Georgia State students and faculty work alongside peers from the other schools who specialize in psychology, nursing, public health, pharmacy and dental hygiene.
