Learning About Dementia

On Wednesday, October 9, 2019, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, we are honored to have several experts from our community speaking on a panel, so that our audience has access to resources, the latest research, and care for patients in our community, which is the best way to address different aspects of the disease. Our audience will have access to local community resources to educate them on what is available to assist in caring for their loved ones and themselves as caretakers. This year’s lecture takes place on the campus of Cal Baptist University, CBU Health Science Campus, Building A, Room 7, located at 3532 Monroe St., Riverside CA 92504.

About the Lecture

Named for one of the 19 founding physicians of the Foundation, the Dr. Robert H. Joseph Memorial Lecture is held each fall. Over the past several decades, lecture topics have covered numerous health issues. Lectures are complimentary and open to the public.  

Dr. Joseph’s Biography

Dr. Robert H. Joseph, to whom this lecture is dedicated, was one of 19 physicians who, in 1984, created the Riverside Medical Clinic Foundation and endowed it with ownership of the original clinic building and property at the Riverside Medical Clinic’s Arlington Avenue campus.

 Dr. Joseph was an ophthalmologist whose entire 25 years of practice were served at the Riverside Medical Clinic.  A native of Saginaw, Michigan, Dr. Joseph was a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Medicine where he received his medical degree in 1954.  Following two years of medical service in the U.S. Air Force, he returned to the University of Michigan Hospitals for his residency in ophthalmology and then joined the Riverside Medical Clinic.

One year after the Foundation was created, Dr. Joseph died of cancer at the young age of 56.  In his will he had established a charitable remainder trust for his wife, which stipulated that the trust assets were to be turned over to the Foundation in the event of her death.  Tragically, Mrs. Joseph passed away just six months following the death of her husband. 

As a permanent tribute to Dr. Joseph, the Foundation established the annual Dr. Robert H. Joseph Memorial Lecture.  RMC Charitable Foundation is very pleased to have the support of Dr. and Mrs. Joseph’s children, Janet Fell, Kathy Patton, Libby Jaehnig and Bob Joseph, Jr., for this yearly lecture.
