Center for Humanities in Medicine
The Center for Humanities in Medicine supports Mayo Clinic’s primary value, the needs of the patient come first, by integrating the arts and other expressions of human culture into the healing environment.
The Center engages interconnected communities of patients, families, staff, learners, and the public to promote the artful and compassionate delivery of healthcare. Humanities in Medicine activities are open to Mayo Clinic patients, staff, visitors and community members and are made possible by the generous donations of grateful benefactors.

The Commonweal Theatre, located in historic downtown Lanesboro, is excited to announce a special production which will be taking to the road in the summer and fall of 2019 in an effort to engage regional communities.
Stones in His Pockets centers on the characters of Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn who, along with a collection of other townsfolk in a fictional Irish community, find themselves cast as extras in the filming of a Hollywood film. The key point of the play, a tragicomedy, occurs when a local teen takes his own life by drowning himself with stones in his pockets. A cast of two will perform all fifteen characters in the story, both male and female.
Following the performance, please join us for an engaging panel discussion around the ideas and topics presented in the play.
This performance, sponsored by the Mayo Clinic Dolores Jean Lavins Center for Humanities in Medicine and made possible with the generous support of the Taylor Fund, is a free event, open to the community.
