"Both Deb and I believe we have been richly blessed. My career and association with Mayo Clinic are part of that blessing. Deb and I believe our responsibility in response is to be in service and relationship to others. We are humbled."
"Mayo Clinic’s pillars of patient care, education and research reflect and inculcate core values requisite in health care sciences and humanity. Mayo Clinic’s philosophy of practice mirrors the Sanskrit term for the Buddhist concept of mudita (contentment from selfless and compassionate action to bring happiness to or relieve suffering of others). These principles and our personal experiences over the last 37 years at Mayo Clinic motivate our continuing support of Mayo Foundation."
