The Mary Lou and Judd Leighton Auditorium-Rochester, Minnesota.
Judd and Mary Lou Leighton first visited the Mayo Clinic in Rochester in the mid-70’s, and through the years developed lasting friendships with many physicians there. As an expression of gratitude for the care they received, the Leightons gave generously in support of Mayo Clinic initiatives, including the Cardiovascular Research Laboratory, the Leighton Auditorium, the Cardiovascular Seminar Room, and establishment of the Judd and Mary Morris Leighton Professorship in Cardiovascular Diseases and Hypertension.
