NFMC Community Impact

Over the past year, The National Farm Medicine Center has been able to:

  • Provide community outreach programs such as free bilingual safety training of Hispanic dairy workers, presentations and training to agritourism operators, skin cancer screenings, and exhibit at farm shows and professional conferences.
  • Conduct the Wisconsin Infant Study Cohort, which examines the link between a farm upbringing and stronger immunity. The objective is to identify key microbial exposures on farms that aid in immunity and offer exposure to non-farm children to reduce rates of respiratory illnesses.
  • Continue the Rollover Protective Structures (ROPS) Rebate program, which provides financial support to encourage farmers to install a ROPS system on older tractors. When used with seatbelts, ROPS are 99% effective at protecting farmers during tractor rollovers which is the leading cause of deaths on farms.
  • Support Veterans-to-Farmers, our heroes returning from danger of war who pursue life as a farmer through research aimed at gaining a grounded understanding of V2Fs. Research includes perceived therapeutic benefits of transitioning to agriculture; knowledge, attitudes and beliefs about safety; and specific health and safety risks. This effort will be to make sure that those who served to keep us safe remain safe while pursuing a vital career.

Marshfield Clinic: Legacy Week

In 2016, Marshfield Clinic celebrates 100 years of enriching lives through accessible, high-quality health care, research and education.

To the many physicians, researchers, staff, community members and donors who have supported our mission over this 100 years, thank you.

From humble beginnings in 1916 when six physicians – Drs. K.W. Doege, William Hipke, Victor Mason, Walter G. Sexton, H.H. Milbee and Roy P. Potter – founded Marshfield Clinic, we now have 700 physicians, 6,800 employees and over 50 locations in Wisconsin.

With innovations in integrated health care, personalized medicine, enhanced patient experience and cutting-edge medical technologies, we are poised to step boldly into our next century of health care for the future.

But, we cannot do it without your help.

As one of few large, independent, nonprofit multispecialty medical clinics in the United States, we rely heavily on philanthropy to provide the best patient care, education and research possible. Many of our most meaningful programs, including Child Life, Reach Out and Read, WINGS and The National Farm Medicine Center, would not be possible without the generosity of our donors.

To help us continue serving our patients with top-quality health care right here in Wisconsin and beyond, we ask you to consider a gift to an area meaningful to you.

As we celebrate our 100th year, we invite you to share in our pride, humility and joy in what we have accomplished, as well as our excitement, expectations and vision for what the future holds.

The future of health care at Marshfield Clinic is bright. Join us in making it shine.
