National Farm Medicine Center

“The National Farm Medicine Center (NFMC) was established in 1981 in response to occupational health problems seen in farm patients coming to Marshfield Clinic. The center continues to focus its research and outreach on rural populations. Current Farm Medicine priorities include preventing youth injuries and fatalities, injury surveillance, community outreach and education, farm microbiome and human immunology, and evaluation research. Farm Medicine scientists and staff address these issues with special expertise in injury prevention, public health, bioinformatics, nursing, sociology, anthropology, education and communications.”
