ESCONDIDO–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 U.S. and Canada from April through October. This high-impact, 1,000-square-foot exhibition on wheels will bring to life Mayo Clinic’s values and vision for the future of health care.
On Tuesday, from 1 to 7 p.m., Palomar Medical Center will welcome the interactive exhibit to the hospital’s campus (2185 Citracado Parkway, Escondido, CA 92029). The event is free and open to the public and attendees will enjoy free health screenings, refreshments, kid’s activities and more. The San Diego Blood Bank Bloodmobile will also be accepting blood donations.
“Throughout our history, people have turned to Mayo Clinic for hope and healing. By experiencing this exhibit you will share the enduring values and exciting vision of Mayo Clinic in service to humanity,” says Kerry Olsen, M.D., chair, Mayo Clinic Sesquicentennial Committee.
A visit to the exhibit will allow guests to further understand the relationship between Palomar Health and Mayo Clinic and what it means to the North San Diego County communities as the first and only California member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network.
Inside the exhibit, attendees will see the human body as never before and discover how Mayo Clinic uses innovation, research and technology to meet the unique needs of individual patients. Through examples of new research to prevent and treat disease, Mayo Clinic’s impact around the world, and stories of patients whose lives have been transformed, the exhibit provides an immersion journey into Mayo Clinic’s values and compelling vision for the future of health care.
