Rochester nurse Genaida Benson, "Piano Nurse", works in Non-Vascular Radiology and has been regularly sharing her beautiful talent with Rochester staff through a private employee COVID19 FB page.

Every day she brings a bit of light and hope to those working to deliver Mayo's mission to patients and students.

About music, Genaida states "it brings relaxation, elevates the mind, mood and spirit and it brings peace to the soul and healing to the heart. Music calms the spirit and decreases anxiety".
