Community Relations

Emeriti are encouraged to act as Marshfield Clinic Representatives in community organizations and volunteer at Community events such as Farm Technology Days (ex: assist with skin cancer screenings).

Our commitment to you is:

  • Helping you stay connected: Many of you have requested an Emeritus directory. Spring of ’24 you will receive a mailing from the MCHS Foundation, asking you to verify your contact information. Those who respond and choose to be included, will receive a director via email. Watch for your mailing from Jessie Nagel!
  • Social Media: Facebook is a wonderful way to stay connected… we are looking for a volunteer to help set-up and manage an Emeritus Facebook page. We will provide some training to get you started. If you are interested in helping, please contact Caroline Wilm at
