Welcome to Episode #2 of The Shakopee Chamber Podcast. This week our guest is Erin Sexton, Director of Community Engagement for Mayo Clinic.

This week we discuss how a company as large as Mayo Clinic has successfully implemented safety measures enterprise wide and worked to improve patient perception and experience during COVID-19, and how all businesses can take lessons from their experience and apply it to their own business.
