Mayo Alumni has launched its iPad® application, adding another platform on which alumni can receive news and stay connected with Mayo Clinic. In addition to providing the inside track on strategic initiatives at Mayo Clinic and highlights of newsworthy activities from Mayo alumni across the globe, the Mayo Alumni app includes many multimedia extras, including interactive news, video and photos.
“Our iPad application will engage alumni in a new way,” says Eric Edell, M.D., secretary-treasurer of the Mayo Clinic Alumni Association and chair of the Mayo Alumni advisory board. “The app offers expanded news and information in a dynamic reading experience.
“The number of physicians and scientists utilizing the iPad for their work is increasing daily,” Dr. Edell says. “With more than 30 million iPad sales estimated for 2012, and 84.4 percent of current iPad users saying reading news is one of the main tasks for which they use the iPad, the Mayo Clinic Alumni Association is meeting the demand of digital users through this new platform.”
The Mayo Alumni iPad app is available free from the iTunes® Store, along with the app version of Discovery’s Edge, Mayo Clinic’s quarterly research magazine.
