Marshfield Site – Amish & Mennonite Focus

Site Coordinator: Susan Wurzer
6 students

The Marshfield site offers students opportunities to learn about Amish/Mennonite culture and rural health care. Central Wisconsin has a significant Amish and Mennonite population in four counties. Students visit these communities to explore how respect for culture can interact with health care. They learn about the balance between cost of medical care and reduction of risk. Some of the sites students visit include public health departments, fee-for-service, midwifery and family practice clinics, dental practices, educational institutions, and various Amish/Mennonite businesses.

Students will be offered enrollment after the application deadline.
