About the Show
Featuring interviews with patients including the Dalai Lama and John McCain, The Mayo Clinic: Faith - Hope - Science tells the story of William Worrall Mayo, an English immigrant who began practicing medicine with his sons Will and Charlie in Rochester, Minnesota. When a deadly tornado tore through their small community in 1883, the Mayos took charge of recovery efforts, enlisting the help of the nearby Sisters of Saint Francis to care for patients. Afterwards, Mother Alfred Moes, the leader of the convent, told Dr Mayo she had a vision from God that instructed her to build a hospital, with him as its director. She believed it would become “world-renowned for its medical arts.” Part 1 of 2.
