St. Francis hosts Mayo Clinic mobile exhibit

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  To honor 150 years of serving humanity, Mayo Clinic is taking its story to the public in a free exhibit destined for stops in more than 40 communities throughout the US and Canada from April through October 2014. 

As a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, St. Francis is proud to host this 1,000-square-foot exhibition on its campus. It arrived at St. Francis and opened to the public from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 21.

"Throughout our history, people have turned to Mayo Clinic for hope and healing," says Kerry Olsen, MD, a Mayo Clinic physician and chair of the Mayo Clinic Sesquicentennial Committee. "By experiencing this exhibit you will share the enduring values and exciting vision of Mayo Clinic in service to humanity." 

Visitors to the exhibit will see the human body in new ways and discover how Mayo Clinic uses innovation, research and technology to meet the unique needs of individual patients. 

"Inside you'll see some information about Mayo history but you'll also see a lot of information about what Mayo is doing today and also Mayo's vision for the future of healthcare," explained Wayne Desbrow, road manager for the Mayo Clinic mobile exhibit. "So it's a combination of topics."

Examples of new research to prevent and treat disease and stories of patients whose lives have been transformed, the exhibit provides an immersion journey into Mayo Clinic's values and its vision for the future of health care.

St. Francis became the first Mayo Clinic Care Network member in Georgia in November 2013. The Mayo Clinic Care Network shares Mayo Clinic's knowledge and expertise with health care systems interested in working together to enhance the quality and delivery of health care for their patients.
