Two films on one DVD ...


Learn how Mayo's discoveries made medical history ...

Film 1 — Reaching New Heights: Secret Stories of the Mayo Clinic Aero Medical Unit
Film 2 — Long Anticipated, Long Remembered: The Creation of Cortisone

Go behind the scenes of Mayo Clinic's top-secret aeronautical research in World War II. Through rare, classified films and archival materials, you'll see how Mayo's discoveries helped the Allies win the war … launched the era of jet aviation … and helped the U.S. develop the space program!

You'll also learn how decades of painstaking work led to the discovery of cortisone … a medication that transformed the lives of people around the world, for which two Mayo physicians received the Nobel Prize.

When you purchase Mayo Clinic newsletters, books and DVDs, proceeds are used to further medical education and research at Mayo Clinic. You not only get the answers to your questions, you become part of the solution.
