In contrast to many studies of first generation Hispanics residing in the U.S., our study focused on participants of both genders who were formally employed outside the home. The purpose of this study was to explore the meaning of health among southeast Idaho Hispanics employed in the agro-industry. Using qualitative methodology, we interviewed twenty participants employed at a potato processing plant. We found that men and women had differing concepts of health based upon their gender roles and the value placed on work outside the home, which influenced their willingness to access formal health care. Based on our findings, there is a need for public health officials in Idaho to collaborate with employers to develop and implement workplace clinics.
