“Prioritizing patients. Advancing medicine. Improving the world.”

Core Purpose Update

Our new Core Purpose statement is “Prioritizing patients. Advancing medicine. Improving the world.”

Artemis Food Drive for San Diego Food Bank

“Prioritizing patients. Advancing medicine. Improving the world.”

Look for the Red Barrels around our San Diego, San Marcos, and Riverside  locations from July 1st through July 31st for food donations to the San Diego Food Bank. Last year, the Food Bank distributed 26 million pounds of food, and the Food Bank serves, on average, 370,000 people per month in San Diego County. Let’s give back to the community together!

Deana Foundation Masquerade Gala

Prioritizing patients. Advancing medicine. Improving the world.”

In June Artemis sponsored the Memory Masquerade Gala in Riverside! The event helps fund grants for undeserved caregivers of people suffering from dementia through a wonderful organization called The Deana Foundation. We do this type of community outreach whenever possible to help establish ties with people in the Alzheimer’s community who may benefit from our studies in Riverside. Purple is the color of dementia, hence Dr. Patrick’s lovely purple gown.
