Mayo Team Trains Medical Staff in Gaza Strip


It's a very unstable part of the world, the Gaza Strip, a place constantly threatened by military attacks. But that didn't stop a Mayo Clinic team from giving much-needed medical care to people there. It made for an eye-opening trip for Todd Lichty and Dr. Abdalla Zarroug…"We decided we were there to do good and to go help the people and we thought if we just kept our goals very simple it would work out," said Todd Lichty of Medtronic. They and two others from Mayo Clinic, traveled to deliver medical equipment worth over $1 million from Minnesota-based Medtronic.
