Mayo Clinic Heritage Days: October 2-6
Established in 1999, Heritage Days celebrates the history and culture of Mayo Clinic.
Through a wide range of creative projects during the year and culminating in a dedicated week of events every fall, Heritage Days strengthens our shared culture and commends all staff and volunteers, whose primary value is “The needs of the patient come first.”
This year, you can access information and enjoy a number of Heritage Days activities online.
- New Heritage Film, “Rising to the Challenge: The Mayo Aero Medical Unit in World War II” – Watch the preview and view the full film starting October 2.
- New Book, “Life at High G-Force: The Quest of Mayo Clinic Researcher Dr. Earl H. Wood” from Mayo Clinic Press.
- History of Medicine Society lecture, “Earl Wood: From centrifuge to bedside: Investigating human physiology in challenging environments”
- Daily Carillon recitals performed by Mayo Clinic carillonneur Austin Ferguson
