Mayo Clinic receives an award from INROADS

By Randy Schwarz

Mayo Clinic recently received a Corporate Plus award from INROADS’ Minneapolis-Saint Paul affiliate for its commitment and partnership with the national internship organization. INROADS helps train and place minority youth in corporate internships at top Fortune companies.

Mayo Clinic has partnered with INROADS since the mid-1980s, sponsoring between two and eight students each summer. In recent years, seven college undergraduates interned each summer in research and administrative areas at Mayo.

One of Mayo’s INROADS interns, Brittany Alexander, received the INROADS Achiever Award, which recognizes INROADS college interns who have overcome a significant obstacle or shown the most significant improvement in their overall INROADS involvement during the academic year. Alexander interned in the College of Medicine.
