Community Outreach

The Riverside Medical Group APP Committee invites our conference participants to “give back” to our communities.

Conference participants are invited to bring bar soap, OTC medications (Tylenol, Aleve) or disposable baby diapers size 3-6 for donation. Transitions Family Violence Services is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building safe and healthy families on the Virginia Peninsula since 1977. They provide services to adult and child victims of domestic violence and work to increase awareness by providing education, prevention programming and opportunities for community members to participate in their mission.

Riverside Foundation
Through the generosity of donors, we are able to go above and beyond the basic standard to provide our communities with remarkable care. Every gift received at the Riverside Foundation, no matter the size, makes a difference for thousands of patients cared for each year. Donations will be directed toward the continuing development of the Dr. Brandon D. Rogers Simulation Lab.
