On July 6, 2013, 7-year-old Amber Rose Kordiak stepped outside to ask her father, Jesse, if he needed any help on the farm.

By In the Loop intheloop

Having Olympic withdrawal? Us, too. That’s why we were excited to find out the competition in Rio isn’t quite over yet.

By In the Loop intheloop

Ten years ago this month, a 70-member multidisciplinary care team from Mayo Clinic’s Rochester campus separated 6-month-old conjoined twins Abby and Isabelle Carlsen. The 12-hour surgery — and the months of planning, practice, and training that went into it — captured the attention (not to mention the hearts) of the nation. So many media outlets documented […]
