Cleveland is emerging as a bona fide Medical Capital, thanks in no small part to world-renowned hospitals, stellar colleges with medical-education programming, and the nation's top medical device manufacturers. But there is more to being a Medical Capital than ably treating the ill. Being a national healthcare leader also means creating an environment that provides access to health, prevention, and wellness education and programming for all citizens. Northeast Ohio is transforming into a healthier region, filled with active bodies, healthful food choices, and supportive organizations for those who seek them.
