Mayo Clinic has built a strong tradition and commitment to being a positive and productive member of the communities in which we live and work. We believe being a good corporate citizen is not just the right thing to do; it also benefits our patients, our employees and the wider community.
Many of our students, staff and clinicians find ways to give back to the community.
Here are some examples of programs and initiatives in which we are involved either through financial support or volunteer commitment.
