Barbara Hollinger, RN, MSN, FNP-C
As an expert in farmworker health, I educate health providers to better understand the health issues disproportionately affecting agricultural workers. Latinos make up most of this population. Special interests include health beliefs of this mostly immigrant group. I am currently completing a study of Latino diabetic farmworkers’ perceptions of causes of their diabetes.
My ten years of FNP practice in rural California is the inspiration for facilitating student rural clinical residencies. I arrange one or more week-long clinical immersions in rural communities for any interested UCSF FNP student hoping students will consider rural communities as a desirable future employment option.
