and Innovation that is Changing the World

Cavendish Global Health Impact Forum was hosted by Cleveland Clinic in collaboration with Cleveland Clinic's Medical Innovation Summit from Sunday, October 25th to Wednesday, October 28th, 2015.


Objectives

The Cleveland Clinic hosted Forum included participation by leading family offices, accomplished foundations, representatives of sovereign wealth funds and organizations engaged in innovation with the potential for transformational impact.  The Forum helped members of the Cavendish community accomplish four objectives:

  • Champion and Share:  Provide a peer-to-peer setting for leading family offices, foundations and sovereign wealth funds to champion and share information on specific sustainable philanthropy, impact investing and grant-giving projects which they are passionate about

  • Create Durable Relationships: Establish family office collaborations and partnerships which will endure post-forum and have pro-social impact for years to come

  • Access Knowledge and Insight:   Help family offices and foundations identify the best scientists, accomplished healthcare delivery professionals and health policy experts driving major advances in health and medical outcomes and benefit from their advice

  • Access Opportunities :  Introduce family offices to compelling private sector companies, researchers and not-for-profit organizations developing innovations with the potential for transformational impact


Program

Memorable Social Program:  To help establish collaborations and partnerships that will endure post-forum and have pro-social impact for years to come, the Cleveland Clinic hosted Forum includes a unique social program with a memorable Black-Tie Gala Dinner at The Cleveland Museum of Art on Sunday, October 25th.  Regarded by many to be one of the world’s most distinguished and comprehensive art museums, the creation of the Cleveland Museum of Art was made possible by the generosity of several accomplished Cleveland based families including Hinman B. Hurlbut, John Huntington, Horace Kelley and Jeptha H. Wade II. Cavendish Members will also have the privilege of an evening at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Tuesday, October 27th; open only to members of the Cavendish community the event will include diner, entertainment by accomplished musicians and a private tour of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
