The MetroHealth system is investing in new projects to improve community health: It's expaning its School Health Program, now in 13 Cleveland schools, by opening a clinic inside Cleveland Heights High School. And it's building an $8 million community health center at Urban Community School, part of the evolution of that campus to serve the neighborhood around it. We'll discuss on The Sound of Ideas. Plus, we'll feature our youngest Start-Up Kid, a first grader who started a craft business.
