MSB – Rochester Practices Dalai Lama’s Message in Health Care Teachings

The Dalai Lama made a special presentation in Rochester on Monday, Feb. 29, at Mayo Clinic, where he has been receiving treatment for a prostate condition.

Head and heart (compassion) are the skills health care leaders need, as the field of Healthcare continues to grow and change. ”
