About

Bio

I come from a family of doctors, and even though I did what was expected and went into the family business ... medicine .... I'm very glad I did. My father was a brain surgeon, my grandfather and uncle were general practitioners, and my older brother is a radiologist. I trained at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota specializing in Internal Medicine and Preventive Medicine. I went on to work there for nearly 32 years in our Executive Health Program, in Mayo Employee Health, as the Medical Directors of Patient and Health Education as well as the Olmsted County (MN) Public Health Department. In my later years I served as the founding (and only) medical editor of Mayo's health newsletter for women. But my real claim to fame was becoming a mother for the first time at age 50! It's been a ride!

Dr. Abbott is inspiring, as one day I want to become a doctor. She is not afraid to use vocabulary appropriately to give knowledge to a person.
