Ken Burns, known for his documentaries on the Civil War, baseball, cancer, national parks, Lewis & Clark, and more -- is now working on a film featuring the history of Minnesota's Mayo Clinic for PBS. The movie is expected to be released in 2018.

According to the website for The Better Angels Society, a group that supports Ken Burns films:

The Mayo Clinic will chronicle the history of this unique medical institution, from its 19th century roots as an unlikely partnership between a country doctor and the Sisters of Saint Francis—forged in response to a devastating tornado in 1883—to its position today as a worldwide model for collaborative patient care, research, and education.

I'm a frequent visitor and patient at the Mayo Clinic. The place rocks. Look forward to seeing the film. (I love Ken Burns movies too.) Check them out HERE if you haven't seen any of them.
