Learn about 'The Women of Mayo Clinic'

On Wednesday, March 15, Goodhue County Historical Society will host the monthly History Break presentation, which will be "The Women of Mayo Clinic."

Author Virginia Wright-Peterson will explore the women's stories in detail that led to the creation of her first book. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch with them to enjoy during the presentation.

The story of Mayo Clinic begins on the Minnesota prairie following a destructive tornado in 1883. Women who joined the growing practice as physicians, laboratory researchers, developers of radium therapy and cancer treatments, and many more aspects of patient care will be discussed.
