Marshfield Clinic Health System begins enrollment in new Community Corps to address local health priorities

March 22, 2021​

MARSHFIELD – Marshfield Clinic Health System began enrollment today for Community Corps, a new AmeriCorps program launched in January that will place 80 full-time members across Wisconsin to support clinics, hospitals, coalitions, youth serving organizations, public health, and other nonprofits and government agencies to address local health priorities. 

Marshfield Clinic Health System AmeriCorps Community Corps is accepting member applications for individuals interested in serving beginning September 2021 through August 2022.

"Community Corps members will provide additional capacity to help organizations address their most pressing community health needs," said Brian Blahnik, manager of the new program. This could include work on nutrition, mental health, substance misuse, chronic disease prevention, healthy growth and development, academics, tobacco, and physical fitness.

"Service in AmeriCorps is an opportunity for individuals to serve their community and also provides valuable work related experience, builds skills and prepares individuals for future employment," Blahnik said. "We also see many nontraditional members who want to give back, share their skills and talents and be a part of a national service movement."

Community Corps members who are selected will begin serving communities on September 13, 2021. Individuals interested in service can visit our website for more information and to apply at

Questions about becoming a member or about the program in general, can be directed Brian Blahnik, Manager at or (715)221-8403.
