Tentative Agenda

Activities

Member Roundtable Discussions



Meaningful conversations about important topics have always been a key element at L3 retreats. They're what set retreats apart from purposeful travel trips. We'll have opportunities for these important connections on a variety of topics to help members engage throughout the retreat.



Speed-dating with Doctors



This is an L3 member favorite. Leading physicians and researchers from the Cleveland Clinic will talk with us about advanced research and medicine during 30-minute roundtable sessions. This format gives members an opportunity to have a conversation with experts. You'll have the opportunity to speak with four experts.

Cleveland Botanical Garden

 

The Cleveland Botanical Garden has been an inspirational oasis for Clevelanders for more than 75 years. It offers 10 acres of beautiful outdoor gardens and its centerpiece, the Eleanor Armstrong Smith Glasshouse, home to plant and animal life from the forests of Costa Rica and the desert of Madagascar. We'll explore the Botanical Garden, then have dinner on the gorgeous Geis Terrace of the Garden's Garden Room.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame



The spectacular Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, designed by world-renowned architect I.M. Pei, is a landmark on the shore of Lake Erie. The hall documents rock history and highlights the performers, producers and others who have been at the center of it. The Hall of Fame was established in 1983 by Ahmet Ertegun, founder and chairman of Atlantic Records. We'll explore this remarkable venue, then participate in L3's Garage Band experience.

The Cleveland Clinic



The internationally renowned Cleveland Clinic, annually named one of the very best hospitals in the U.S., is home to the finest cardiology program in the world. The Cleveland Clinic has pioneered many medical advances, including coronary bypass surgery and facial transplants, and it's regarded as among the world's best in cardiac surgery, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, neurology, neurosurgery, oncology, orthopedics, pediatrics and pulmonology.

University Hospitals Medical Center



The University Hospitals Medical Center, the main campus of the University Hospitals System and an affiliate hospital of Case Western Reserve University, is in the University Circle neighborhood of Cleveland, next door to the university and the Cleveland Clinic. It is home to world-class clinical and research centers in cancer care, pediatrics, women's health, orthopedics, spine, radiology, radiation oncology, neurosurgery, neuroscience, cardiology, cardiovascular surgery, organ transplantation and human genetics.

The Great Lakes Science Center



The Great Lakes Science Center, a museum and educational facility in downtown Cleveland, displays the features of the natural environment in the Great Lakes region. The museum, which opened in 1996, features the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, where we'll tour galleries and interactive exhibits and examine unique NASA artifacts. We'll also tour the historic William G. Mather steamship and find out what life was like on board a 618-foot Great Lakes freighter as we explore its huge cargo holds, brass and oak pilot house, elegant guest quarters and four-story engine room. We'll see the engineering firsts that helped transform Northeast Ohio into a great industrial center.

Cleveland Museum of Art

 

The Cleveland Museum of Art is internationally renowned for its substantial holdings of Asian and Egyptian art. The museum houses a diverse permanent collection of more than 61,000 works of art from around the world. It is one of the most visited art museums in the world.  

EDWINS Leadership & Restaurant Institute


EDWINS Leadership & Restaurant Institute offers formerly incarcerated adults a foundation in the culinary and hospitality industries, and a support network necessary for long-term success.

 

The driving principle behind the organization is that every human being, regardless of their past, has a right to a fair and equal future.

 

While enrolled in the program, students are given intensive training and work experience. They are also provided with free housing, legal services, medical care, clothing, job coaching, literacy programs and more at the Second Chance Life Skills Center, a three-building campus nearby.

 

EDWINS has grown to include an award-winning French restaurant, butcher shop, bakery and EDWINS Too, a culinary incubator, community kitchen, event and maker's space. We're excited to have dinner at EDWINS and learn about the remarkable success of the organization.
