CINCINNATI -- The Mayfield Education & Research Foundation announces "The Art & Science of Healing," an exciting new fundraising event, from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, March 21, at the 21C Museum Hotel downtown.

Against the backdrop of the hotel’s mind-expanding art galleries, guests will be invited to celebrate personal triumph over challenge as they enjoy healthy, locally sourced cuisine from the hotel’s Metropole restaurant. The event promises a rare and fully guided glimpse into the magnificent workings of the human brain and nervous system while presenting innovative approaches to the care and feeding of body and mind.

The Art & Science of Healing is open to the public. The event will bring together an estimated 250 guests, including current and former patients, families, friends, colleagues, physicians, clinicians, and healthcare and civic leaders.
Patient honorees include survivors of brain aneurysms, brain tumors, debilitating back injuries, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease.  Professional portraits will be made of the patients during the event to celebrate their good health, and all guests will be invited to learn more about brain and spine research, treatments, and good health through visually stunning and interactive exhibits.  

Presenting sponsors include The Christ Hospital, TriHealth, UC Health, Mercy Health and Mayfield Clinic. Individual tickets begin at $50, and sponsorships begin at $1,000.  For more information, please visit

About the Mayfield Education & Research Foundation

The Mayfield Education & Research Foundation, established in 1978, exists to advance the care of patients with brain and spine disorders through leading-edge education and research. The Mayfield Education & Research Foundation supports and sustains the legacy of the Mayfield Clinic by promoting innovative research and development alongside accessible, relevant education for physicians, residents, and fellows, patients and their families, and the community at large.  During its first 35 years the Foundation supported the research and education of local physicians and residents with modest grants.  In 2008 Mayfield physicians determined that the fund held great potential to more widely serve the community, and they began donating a percentage of their income to build the Foundation’s endowment. The Foundation is taking an increasingly more visible role as it expands its grant making and impact on the local community. For more information visit
