For more than 150 years, Mayo Clinic has pursued continuous improvements in health and health care delivery. The Mayo Clinic Robert D. Patricia E. Kern Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery is Mayo's innovative driver for change, building on this strong history of taking a scientific approach to compassionate care. It brings together a unique, multidisciplinary team with experts from within health care and beyond, to partner with clinicians. Together they translate ideas and findings into real-world applications, and build on these findings to transform the practice of medicine.

A variety of Mayo's work will be presented March 6-9 at the Society of Behavioral Medicine's 40th Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions, in Washington, D.C. If you happen to be there, you can meet some of our researchers at Booth #7, or at their presentations, which are noted below (all times are Eastern Time Zone):
