Learn more about last year’s winner, Eviction Prevention:
Health is shaped by community. Efforts to improve health in our communities require cross-sector collaboration (businesses, non-profits, government, citizen advocacy groups), where many perspectives, strengths and resources come together to address complex challenges, such as poverty, homelessness, mental health, obesity, diabetes and disease prevention. As Mayo Clinic founder, Dr. William Worrall Mayo, stated describing the broad expertise needed to best serve the interests of each patient: “a union of forces is necessary.”
The Mayo Clinic Shared Value Award supports a new or existing collaborative effort to address a complex social challenge impacting health and vibrancy in Olmsted County, MN.
