CHIPPEWA VALLEY (WQOW) – Eagle-eyed drivers along Highway 29 may have spotted the Marshfield Clinic Health System’s new Hmong notice board.
It is one of the 30 of the space dedicated to the promotion of vaccinations in a multilingual manner.
As part of a public service initiative that includes 80 panels, Marshfield Clinic Health System has partnered with Lamar Outdoor Advertising to install various billboards in more than three different languages, including Hmong and Spanish.
All of this helps communicate to people in their native language how to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Notice boards are only part of how Marshfield communicates with patients on their own terms.
“The mission of the Marshfield Clinic Health System is to provide safe, accessible and affordable health care. Part of what we’ve done with these notice boards is consistent with our mission to continue to provide this to the communities we serve, ”said Marshfield Clinic Health System Executive Director Bill Priest.
Marshfield also uses translators and other electronic devices to communicate with people in their own language.
