NFMC InternsAugust 19, 2014 - The National Farm Medicine Center hosted two students as part of a national summer internship program providing practical experience in the field of occupational safety.

Ivanna Pereyra, Salisbury University, and Taylor Arnold, University of Memphis, spent eight weeks in Marshfield, Wis., working primarily on Seguridad en las Lecherias, a project that is testing culturally appropriate occupational safety and health training for immigrant dairy workers.

Pereyra and Arnold came to the Farm Center as part of the Occupational Health Internship Program (OHIP), an initiative of the Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics Competition for internships was keen with just 34 positions nationwide for more than 400 applicants.

"This has been a wonderful opportunity to have fresh young minds among us who can offer new perspectives and can ask questions that don't occur to us but have relevance to our work," said Matthew Keifer, MD, MPH, director of the National Farm Medicine Center, a program of Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation. "We hope that Ivanna and Taylor benefitted from their experience here as much as we have benefitted from their presence with us."
