HCI Spotlight:

Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic partnered to provide a Six-Week Health Challenge Event between Glenville and Hough Residents. Over 200 residents signed up for the Challenge taking advantage of the various programs and services offered in their community. Many commented that they made lifestyle changes such as increased exercising, learning to count calories, reading food labels and cooking healthy food.
