You’re invited: Oct. 26 community event to celebrate medical research


Community members in and around Rochester, Minn., are invited to “Community Celebration: Making a Difference Through Research” from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 26, in Phillips Hall, Siebens Building, Mayo Clinic.

Each year, the Mayo Clinic Center for Translational Science Activities (CTSA) and Olmsted Medical Center hold this event to celebrate the many ways that medical research improves our communities. You’ll have an opportunity to network with others involved in research, such as volunteers and research teams. The event is free and open to the public.

Community members mingle during the social hour at last year's event.

The evening will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a social hour (refreshments and exhibits). The main program, which will begin at 6:30 p.m., includes a welcome from Rochester Mayor Ardell Brede, as well as presentations on engaging the community in research and how nursing research improves patient care.

Registration is not required, and parking is available at no charge in Mayo ramps and surface lots.
