In a first-of-its-kind collaboration, researchers at the Mayo Clinic are working with more than a dozen community organizations to keep immigrants and refugees from developing common diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity…Mayo Clinic Dr. Mark Wieland said he's trying to figure out what programs works best for each community.
