New blog will connect global community of Mayo patients and caregivers

ROCHESTER, Minn., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mayo Clinic today announced the launch of its culture blog, Sharing Mayo Clinic, (http://sharing.mayoclinic.org), which provides an online site for patients and employees to share their stories about what makes Mayo Clinic unique.

The new blog is one of several social media initiatives to encourage patients, health care providers and other Mayo Clinic employees to share their experiences and connect with people all over the world.

"Mayo Clinic's reputation has been built by patients sharing their personal Mayo stories with family members and friends," says Lee Aase, Mayo Clinic's manager of social media and syndication. "Many patients share their Mayo experiences with others when they go home. Sharing Mayo Clinic offers a place for this worldwide community of patients and providers to gather and tell their stories."

"This new blog will enable many more patients and their families to share their Mayo Clinic experience in their own words. In turn, we at Mayo Clinic look forward to learning how to preserve those services that are of most value, how we might improve those that can be strengthened, and enhance the health care experiences for all of our patients in the future."

Mayo Clinic has previously established a presence on several popular social sites, including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Flickr, and provides other social media venues such as a news blog, podcasts and consumer health blogs through two Mayo Clinic Web sites, www.MayoClinic.org and
