Might be a good place to start. They have at least 600 or 700 docs, and I'm sure there are some who specialize/research in the areas you're looking for. When I was home visiting my folks, I read an article in the paper about pesticides and miscarriage: http://www.marshfieldclinic.org/mc/releases/details.asp?id=2142
Thanks so much for those links!!! I haven't heard of them before.
And no, I am not technically a writer. I've written some environmental/ag articles, but nothing big. I grew up on a farm, my mom is one of the top factory farm fighters in the nation, and I am going to medical school in the fall. I am very interested in using my degree to investigate the health effects of industrial agriculture. Please look at this link and PM if you want to talk about it GRACE
I don't know for sure, but I'm guessing that not many rural medical places have such a big research facility. In addition to ag research, there's a lot of clinical and genetic research. Marshfield Clinic was one of the major researchers in the Human Genome Project: http://research.marshfieldclinic.org/
Yes, I'm proud of my hometown - more proud than I realized!
Good luck in med school. What school are you heading off to?
alimarie, hopefully you are subscribed to this thread. I occasionaly skim through the Marshfield Clinic press releases to see what is going on in my hometown. Saw one today that might be of interest to you.
When I was a kid, I don't remember Marshfield Clinic's research facilities being much more than a single, fairly small, building. It's huge now. So is the Clinic. The Web site says over 700 doctors - that's not too shabby!
