Zerhouni Joins Mayo Clinic Trustees

Dr. Elias Zerhouni

Dr. Elias Zerhouni, former director of the National Institutes of Health, has joined the Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees. (Read the rest of the announcement.)

Dr. Zerhouni spoke at Mayo's commencement a few years ago and told the story of how his radiologist uncle urged him to apply to only two American institutions for residency training - Mayo and Johns Hopkins. He was accepted into Hopkins, but not Mayo. He laughed when he told the story, as did the graduates. I think he'd agree, having attended his first board meeting, that "all's well that ends well."  We are very glad to have him with us - finally.
