THE MAYO CLINIC: FAITH, HOPE, AND SCIENCE
This is the story of the renowned institution that has been called the “place for hope when there is no hope.” By combining the history of the institution with stories about present-day patients, the film makes an important contribution to discussions about our commitment to taking care of each other, about the role of money and profit in medicine, and about the very nature of healing itself.
