November 28, 2018

Pillars in the community, Beverly and Dr. Deyo-Svendsen, have served Menomonie for more than 31 years. They've generously given their time, talent and financial support to the community and the institutions they love.

There's no place quite like home, and as Mark Deyo-Svendsen, M.D., and his spouse, Beverly, have found, there are no people quite like those at home either.

Dr. Deyo-Svendsen, vice chair of practice, Mayo Clinic Department of Family Medicine, knows the people of his northwest Wisconsin town as only a family medicine physician in a small town can — intimately. Beverly spends her working hours on staff at the University of Wisconsin-Stout.
