ic affairs and provost. “This is a win-win opportunity for both organizations that can only lead to new and better insights into the prevention and management of chronic, lifestyle-related disease and good health for generations.”

The centerpiece of the Akron General commitment to wellness is its three Health & Wellness Centers, large outpatient community-based facilities that bring together a range of clinical outpatient services with exercise and retail-oriented health services, all in an effort to improve the health of the community. In a comprehensive health and wellness center, there is a complete outpatient continuum of care, including diagnostic testing, treatment and rehabilitative services. Services include outpatient surgery, emergency medicine, physical therapy, sports medicine, sports performance, cardiopulmonary rehab occupational therapy, neurology and speech therapy.

“The focal point of each of Akron General’s Health & Wellness Centers is its LifeStyles medical fitness facility, a state-of-the-art fitness center where exercise programs are directed by physicians and focus on the prevention and treatment of lifestyle-related disease, illness and injury through regular participation in medically supervised physical activity, nutrition and health education,” said Doug Ribley, senior vice president of health and wellness services at Akron General Health System. “Our focus is squarely on prevention.”

“This truly is a groundbreaking partnership that promotes and advances public health innovations through education, research and service,” said Sonia Alemagno, Ph.D., dean of Kent State’s College of Public Health.

“Our partnership with Akron General highlights our commitment to healthcare research in the College of Public Health and across the university, research that is focused specifically on improved health outcomes in our region, and across the nation,” said Grant McGimpsey, vice president of research and sponsor
