Honor: “Mayo clinic nurses of WWII”
Part of my job as a Physical Therapist is to educate patients, but I have come to realize that these patients educate ME every day. Every patient is individual and unique in their own way; all have their own amazing histories and stories. I have worked with a First Lieutenant who worked in Army Intelligence who developed a code-breaking machine that was able to read the messages of the Soviet Union during WWII! And, I am currently working with Rose Bayuk, a lovely 98 year old 1938 graduate from the Kahler School of Nursing (her diploma actually signed by both Charles and William Mayo). She has recently been honored and spoke in Rochester about her service as an Army Nurse in WWII. She practiced nursing on ships that transported soldiers from Europe to America as well as during European and Pacific invasions.
