Organizers said the purpose is to inspire an interest in the healthcare profession.  

"Something that we look for in students of all ages is a passion for helping others.  A nurse isn't a great nurse unless they care for their patients," said John Ninas, the Mayo Clinic Healthcare Career Festival Event Coordinator.

Throughout the day over 300 Mayo Clinic employees helped highlight dozens of different career options available to students.
