Mayo Families' Connection


The Mayo Families’ Connection (MFC) is an organization of spouses and significant others of Mayo Clinic residents, fellows, and research fellows and Mayo Medical School students. Our purpose is to welcome and assist in the transition of moving to Rochester, Minnesota. We provide a system of support and personal enrichment through informative programs and recreational functions with a variety of special interest groups and annual MFC events.

Sponsored by the Alice Mayo Society, MFC strives to help spouses and significant others find others in the Mayo community. Events are advertised in the MFC monthly online newsletter, the Kaleidoscope.
