Marathon County will soon have the Rural Health Initiative. It focuses on the health and wellness of our farm families.
Rhonda Strebel, the Executive Director, stopped by NewsChannel 7 at Noon on Tuesday to talk about it. Here's how it works, a health professional comes out to your house. They'll do screenings, give you information and even provide referrals. Strebel says the initiative will be coming soon, but in order for it to become a reality they need monetary donations.
Donations are accepted at the Community Foundation of North Central Wisconsin in Wausau or you can send them to Rhonda Strebel at 100 County Rd. B in Shawano, Wisconsin 54166.
