I was at the Premier Screening last Thursday in Jacksonville. I can hardly wait till Thursday CORRECTION TUESDAY.. (@rosemarya thank u for catching that)…. for the full viewing of this Documentary. The 1 hour trailer we saw was very much a teaser preview. This will be an excellent well produced Mayo Clinic Documentary by Ken Burns. I am so excited to see this.

My dear Jackie!
Please note that Sept. 25 is on a TUESDAY- I don’t want anyone to miss this event:-)
I was able to attend the pre-screening event in Rochester, which showed the film in its entirety. I would encourage everyone to watch it next week, or set your DVR. Really inspiring!
Wow! I just found a panel discussion about the film with Ken Burns, Dr. John Noseworthy and the film team from the PBS station in Arizona. Here's the link! It's very interesting hearing about this film!
My husband was able to attend the pre-screening event too, and had nothing but praise for the film, and for the film-maker, Ken Burns.
He mentioned that the movie was particularly inspiring because it shows how care, hope arose out of tragedy and devastation caused by a tornado. It truly is the story about a place that offers hope when there is none, and depicts the true value of Mayo Clinic – the needs of the patient come first.
I'm really looking forward to seeing it next week.
For being a patient of Mayo clinic myself for over 15 years, my father-in-law was a patient for over 30 years, my sister-in-law an employee for over 15 years, I am extremely excited to see this documentary. No one is perfect especially in the healthcare industry, where a diagnosis is a constant moving target. I know that we all learn from success and failure. I listen to this interview with Ken Burns. Wow this is such a much needed education documentary that I hope many will learn from. So exciting. A much needed documentary. Here is the link for anyone who want to listen.
Thanks Dawn @dawn_giacabazi !
I saw the preview on Sept. 13 in Jacksonville last week. I found the film to be very moving, and interesting. I learned more about Mayo's humble beginnings and how the nuns of St. Mary played a big part in raising the funds to build Mayo, and equally important; incorporating compassion along with medical treatment. That compassion that Mayo has is still evident today; that is one of the things that sets Mayo apart from other medical facilities. I am so looking forward to seeing the film in it's entirety on Sept. 25. It was an added bonus to have Ken Burns and his team there to speak after the premier. Ken Burns stated that he hopes this documentary will inspire all other medical instititions to aspire to the same level of excellence that Mayo has. He said he doesn't understand why all are not trying to recreate Mayo's model; because everybody deserves exemplary care. He is absolutely right. I am grateful for the opportunity to have seen the pre-screening. I went with 'Travelgirl' Jackie, who is a real delight to hang with, and I got to meet a new mentor, 'Debbraw' Debbra, and her handsome husband. This is not a show to be missed!
I can't wait to see the documentary on PBS. I went to the screening and absolutely loved the 45-minute preview and the panel discussion. I have been and continue to be impressed with Mayo's philosophy and their caring delivery of medical service. The preview screening just helped me realize what a long and beautiful history Mayo has. Looking forward to the full film.

It's tonight. Everyone got their popcorn ready and DVRs turned on?
Just broke out my toothpicks to hold my eye lids open 🙂
@johnbishop ROTFL.. You are too funny..
It was wonderful! I kept thinking, "I've been there, I've seen that," (Thanks to the tour we took in June). I really enjoyed the story of the humble beginnings and about the Mayo brothers and their father. A whole family dedicated to medicine! Incredible, PBS usually does reruns of their specials so I'm looking forward to seeing it again and again. I saw that Amazon Prime will have it "On Demand" so I might break down and sign up for Amazon Prime as well.
@johnbishop I did the same – past my usual bedtime😆
