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.

Performances at 2-3:30pm and 7-8:30pm
The Mayo Clinic Center for Palliative Medicine, Mayo Clinic Hospice of Rochester, and the Rochester Civic Theatre are proud to bring you The Life and Death Comedy Show Presented by Stevie Ray's Improv Company.
Stevie Ray (a native of Rochester) and his comedy troupe will be leading the audience in a sometimes interactional, sometimes informative and completely clean comedy experience to explore issues around one’s death. Humor is an effective way to approach the unapproachable – dying.
Attending the show will open up the conversation about declaring a health-care agent and completing an advance care directive.
This is a FREE event, but an RSVP is required as seating is limited. Choose between an afternoon or evening showtime.
