CVMG team involved in Project Impact,
diabetes education, holiday meals
Cucamonga Valley Medical Group’s patients are “treated like family,” a fact the CVMG providers illustrate on a daily basis while providing compassionate care.
The family tree — with roots of life, love and compassion — extends to those communities surrounding CVMG’s six locations throughout the Inland Empire.
The CVMG team has served those communities by treating patients and lending a hand through a number of charities, events and projects in neighborhoods throughout the region.
“Our team at Cucamonga Valley Medical Group is about much more than simply treating our patients like family. We also believe in the community and the people who live here,” said CVMG physician and CEO Rahmi Mowjood.
“We feel it is just as important to do our part to make our community a better place to live, whether it is through our Community Health Fair, Back-to-School Clinics, Diabetes Education Classes, serving Thanksgiving dinners to the less fortunate or participating in Project Impact,” Dr. Mowjood said.
For a fourth straight year, CVMG participated in Project Impact.
The team assisted a family of three as the mother and two children relocated to a home in Fontana on Dec. 21.
The mother, her 4-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter had been living in an apartment before the move to the home in Fontana. The children’s father is deceased. The CVMG team helped supply and deliver furniture, household items, appliances and bedding.
In 2018, CVMG helped a family of five, including three young children, during a move from a motel to a condo.
“We know that many people face difficult challenges, and we feel fortunate to be in a position to assist families in need while making a positive impact on their lives,” Dr. Mowjood said. “To see a smile on a young child’s face is truly rewarding. At CVMG, we provide compassionate care to all of our patients. We also must display compassion and caring within our communities.”
This Thanksgiving, CVMG continued a tradition of serving dinner to people or families who otherwise might not have had the opportunity to savor a holiday meal.
“We reached out to patients who we knew would be alone for the holidays and delivered a hot meal to them on Thanksgiving,” Dr. Mowjood said. “We’ve also helped feed the homeless while volunteering at a local food kitchen.”
CVMG certainly has been active in the community.
In addition to the Thanksgiving meals and Project Impact, the CVMG team has participated in community events such as:
- The fourth annual CVMG Health Fair held Sept. 28 at Tamarind Park.
- Back-to-School Clinics that offered immunizations and sports physicals in preparation for the upcoming school year.
- The Diabetes Education Program provided important tips and tools to those contending with diabetes.
- “Walk with a Doc,” a two-fold endeavor that included health tips and a brief walk with a provider.
“At CVMG we consider our community to be part of our family,” Dr. Mowjood said.
