Benzie County Extension Office

Health & Farm Stress Educator


Dr. Remington Rice (Rem/Remi) serves on the health team with the MSU Extension Health and Nutrition Institute. Dr. Rice conducts health and farm stress outreach statewide, although he primarily does so in Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Kalkaska, and Manistee Counties. Dr. Rice earned his doctorate in Health Psychology at Virginia Commonwealth University and earned his M.S. in Psychology at Northern Michigan University. He is also a native of Benzie County and the 5th generation to grow up on the same family farm. As a first-generation college graduate who grew up in a rural community, this role as an extension educator brings his career back full circle by allowing him to help the same communities who helped raise him. In his free time, Dr. Rice enjoys playing Dungeons & Dragons, spending time with his family, going for walks, and playing with his barn cats.
