“The opportunity to collaborate with a Mayo Clinic specialist is an incredible development for us," says Eric Lucas, CEO The Oxygen Plan Corporation (O2).

"Mayo Clinic provides subject matter expertise to help us better understand the overall patient population and challenges facing our healthcare system. This expertise is fundamental to the evolution of our product offering," says Eitel Dannenfels, VP of Business Development.
“Managing stress is one way to keep patients from becoming patients in the first place, says Ed Creagan, M.D., Mayo Clinic oncologist. “Everyone should know the impact that stress is having on his/her life.”
"Stress in the U.S. workplace is bad news for employers as it manifests in lost productivity, absenteeism, presenteeism, increased group health expense, employee turnover and disability expenses," says Dr. Donald E.
