Cleveland Clinic has performed its first three-way kidney swap, using technology to genetically match up six people.

The kidney swap involved three pairs of people, each with one person needing a kidney and the other willing to donate theirs.  The problem was that within each pair, the donor and the recipient were not compatible.

A local therapy program at Cleveland Clinic Akron General will help adults with chronic illnesses explore the arts.

It’s called HeRe We Arts. It’s a therapy program that uses music, visual arts, movement, theater and writing to help treat things like mental illness, arthritis and diabetes. Lisa Gallagher, the research program manager, says participants have seen success with these groups, with some feeling less chronic pain.
