Cleveland Clinic

Chronic diseases such as heart disease, asthma, cancer, and diabetes compromise the quality of life of more than 133 million Americans, or 45 percent of the population.¹ Canyon Ranch Institute and the Cleveland Clinic formed a partnership in 2007 based on mutual interest of increasing prevention and improving wellness through community-based programs.
