Patients have voice through the One Voice Advisory Council


One Voice empowers patients and their families to have a say about processes and outcomes in the Division of Cardiovascular Diseases at Mayo Clinic.   Bob Dimler, a Mayo Clinic patient and participant in the One Voice program shares his  story, "You have been given a life sentence!"  Here is an excert: 

I was introduced to One Voice through my participation at Gonda 4 and have found it to be a growth experience beyond belief. The opportunity to meet and learn from other patients and family members who have had similar experiences, to be involved in the Caring Hearts Visitor program, to meet and interact with professional staff members, to observe their knowledge, caring and passion, to attend seminars and symposiums regarding cutting edge concepts in medical care and to be in the same room with all of these people and have your input listened to and valued. I am AMAZED!!
