Great job on the video. It's very interesting to see the different aspects of what Mayo all does. Hopefully Mayo continues to do more of these of different areas. You never know who it could inspire for a career.

very interesting. Thank you Axel and Ann

COMMENT

What a great way to educate, appreciate, and celebrate all the careers and vocations that bond our Mayo Clinic community! Axel is the new "Bill Nye – The Science Guy" for Mayo Clinic! "Axel Gumbel – The MC Career Correspondent" Maybe not as catchy as Bill Nye – Gumbel is a tough name to rhyme with!!

COMMENT

Ann is a super hero!!! Nice video!

Nice job Ann!!

Please feature the guys who work to keep all the lab equipment up and running! All of the robots and other equipment that's critical to getting lab results out correctly and in a timely fashion. They're amazing and several of them are getting close to retirement and they're having a hard time finding new hires. I didn't even know that was a career option until I worked in labs.

The techs supervisor should get with Nell Robinson in the Education office to see if there are opportunities in their High School Outreach programs.
