Throughout the Clinic’s 47 year history, volunteers have been an important part of the Clinic. Volunteers come here for many reasons, but they all have something in common – the wish to help others. In doing so, they get something in return. As a volunteer at the Riordan Clinic, you can learn while you serve. It gives you a chance to expand your knowledge and grow as a person while working with professionals in a leading, world-renowned integrative medical facility. What you gain is immeasurable, but most of all you have the opportunity to make a difference, to reach out and touch the lives of others, and find beauty in acts of kindness.
Riordan Clinic’s Mission Statement: Dedicated to the mission of serving in ways to stimulate an epidemic of health for the benefit of humankind.
