Diwali in Rochester

By Lucinda Gruber

At Mayo, we pride ourselves on our diverse community and inclusive culture. We are truly an international melting pot with employees, residents, and patients coming from countries all over the world. Multiple resource groups are available to support our diverse population here, which simply adds to the richness of our working environment. For the sixth year in a row, Mayo Clinic has been ranked on DiversityInc's Top Hospitals and Health Systems, coming in sixth this year. This is an honor, but also a reminder of Mayo's commitment to our patients to provide equitable, high quality, patient-centered care.

Even outside of our clinical practice, our community celebrates this diversity with multiple events throughout the year. As Dr. Anjali Bhagra, one of our General Internal Medicine physicians, says "at Mayo Rochester, we celebrate everything together." The most recent of these celebrations, Diwali, was well attended by our residents. It looks like they had a great time! Check us out on Facebook and Instagram as well!
