My name is Dr. Mike Harper. I'm a neurologist at Mayo Clinic. Within medicine in general and in medicine at Mayo, we are at a very exciting time in areas of new novel therapies related to regenerative medicine and individualized medicine and other discoveries that are being made, because we're very good at sharing knowledge and having people get access to new technology and new treatments in a timely way.

We're not really treating a disease or interacting with the disease, we're interacting with another human being that we make a very strong emotional connection to and dedication to. As a member of the board of governors, I help set the strategy for Mayo Clinic-- the overall strategy-- that is designed to sustain and improve the integration of our organization around the needs of the patient and to promote and enhance the Mayo model of care.
