By In the Loop intheloop

What started as a search for historical tidbits for a “Jeopardy-style game” about the role of women in Mayo Clinic’s history turned into something much more once Virginia Wright-Peterson, Ph.D., began looking through Mayo’s archives. “I started reading some of the stories, and I couldn’t believe it that as a local person and someone who […]
