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.

To truly thrive, Northeast Ohio must be a healthy region, filled with active bodies, healthful food choices, and supportive organizations for those who seek them.
