Welcome to the debut issue of the reimagined Cleveland Clinic Magazine!

Those of you who took our readership survey told us you want a publication that informs and inspires you with the latest Cleveland Clinic news alongside stories on a range of topics, from medical innovation to philanthropic impact. We heard you.

Then again, we’re big on co-creation around here. In our cover story, you’ll learn how patients are playing a key role in designing our healing environments, including a new building for Cleveland Clinic’s Neurological Institute.

Also in this issue: We take you inside a lab that is training tomorrow’s eye surgeons ... and bring you up to speed on new developments in heart and vascular research and clinical microbiology ... and even share a few tips for beating the winter blahs, complete with a recipe for some comfort food 2.0.

Cleveland Clinic Magazine is actually two magazines. To complement the print edition, we’ve created this robust digital edition with a wealth of engaging bonus content, including expanded stories, photo galleries and videos.

Offline or online, the goal is the same: a magazine that you can’t put down. On second thought, put it down if you must ... but only long enough to make a gift to Cleveland Clinic.

Our tagline—Giving Does Good—says it all. When it comes to helping Cleveland Clinic save lives and change lives, your vital support makes a positive and profound difference. Philanthropy is the rocket fuel that propels our nonprofit healthcare system to ever-greater heights.

What do you think of this new magazine? What stories do you want to see in future issues? Please send us an email and share your thoughts.

In the meantime, here’s wishing you a healthy and joyful new year of doing good!
