Why is it called the Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center?
Mr. Dan Abraham, founder of Slim-Fast, is a visionary entrepreneur and philanthropist. "Mayo Clinic saved my life many times and then helped me to improve my health and performance dramatically," says Dan Abraham. "I was so grateful to Mayo and its staff that I wanted to do something to express my thanks." The first Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center opened as an amenity for Mayo Clinic staff in 1995, followed by a second facility that has been in service since 1998. The Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center building opened in 2007. With additional support from Mr. Abraham, a five-floor expansion opened in May 2014, extending its mission to patients and, through the center's innovations and discoveries, to people everywhere. Since its inception, the Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center has earned recognition as a national leader among corporate wellness programs.
