The panel will include Dr. Claude Deschamps, President and CEO UVM Health Network Medical Group and former Chief of Surgery at the Mayo Clinic; Ellen Adams, Director and Curator of the Alice T Miner Museum; and Dr. Richard Frost, author and historian.
The screening will be open to the public and be held at the Joseph C. Burke Education and Research Center at the Miner Institute in Chazy on Tuesday, September 18th, at 6:30 p.m.
Blending historical narrative with patient interviews, THE MAYO CLINIC: FAITH | HOPE | SCIENCE explores the founding of the Mayo Clinic. The documentary is a timely look at how one institution has met the changing demands of healthcare for 150 years—and what that can teach us about facing the challenges of patient care today.
Inventor, businessman, and philanthropist, HEART’S DELIGHT: THE WILLIAM H. MINER STORY chronicles the revolutionary impact Miner made on the North Country, as well as the world. With innovations such as the electrification of the region, building hydro dams, power plants, and the founding of CVPH, Miner’s legacy is still felt today.
