As a health care organization, Mayo Clinic is closely monitoring the national and international outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus). We are committed to the continued safety of our patients, staff and community members and are taking precautions to protect people from the spread of this disease.
This includes postponing upcoming events hosted by the Department of Development and evaluating how we accommodate them in later 2020. We cherish these opportunities to connect with you and share Mayo Clinic’s vision for the future. However, we do not want to put anyone’s health at risk as circumstances around COVID-19 evolve.
We had recently invited you to attend the Behind the Shields event in Jacksonville, Florida on Tuesday, March 31. This event will be postponed to a later date, and we will be in touch with the details as they are finalized. Thank you for understanding the necessity of these adjustments and for your continued interest in joining Mayo Clinic for these opportunities to link fellowship and philanthropy.
On a closing note, please know that Mayo Clinic remains a trusted source of health information, including on COVID-19. For the latest updates from Mayo Clinic experts, please visit Mayo Clinic News Network. This resource will provide a stream of COVID-19 articles updated in real time as circumstances and guidance from public health agencies change.
We are honored to continue providing you with guidance on timely health-related topics and look forward to connecting with you at future Mayo Clinic events.
