Mayo Clinic encourages and maintains a caring service environment where individual differences are valued and respected.
Mayo Clinic is dedicated to furthering minority health and wellness efforts and ending health disparities within the community it serves through education and awareness programs, personalized health care and innovative research.
Mayo Clinic developed the Live Well — Be Well initiative to promote and provide health education, especially about the importance of clinical trials, in minority communities.
In 2009, Live Well — Be Well programs reached more than 5,000 community members through educational forums, community events and other outreach efforts. As a result, the participation rate for minorities involved in cancer clinical trials was 21.4 percent in 2009, compared to 7 percent involvement in 2004.
