For the second time this month, Dr. Dori Rose Inda was honored for her effort to improve access to health care for seasonal and agricultural workers across the state.
Inda was also quick to share the credit.
A Watsonville resident, Inda is a member of the Salud Para La Gente board of directors, as well as the founder and executive director of the Watsonville Law Center. For the past decade, she and others have worked to bring health care to injured agriculture workers. The goal is to provide the same workers compensation benefits to low-wage workers: the treatment and recovery time that farm workers need so they can return to their jobs and suppor their families.
