John Barkmeier, MD Biography

Fox Valley Technical College Foundation
Board Past President
Community Member  |  Appleton


A member of the FVTC Foundation Board since 1995 and current Past President, I have participated in the growth of the Foundation and its support of the College. I continue to be amazed at the breadth of the College’s programs and the lives it changes. 

I am retired after practicing as a Thedacare Family Physician and Geriatrician for 35 years.  Additional roles included 15 years as Medical Director for Touchpoint and Medical Director for IT. I also established Thedacare’s long term care service.

In our support of educational growth, my wife, Diane, serves on the Appleton School System Board.  Much of our current free time is spent with our three children and five granddaughters. With our remaining time we love to travel golf and play with photography.
