Her Story | Dr. Rebecca C. Rivera, MD
The GC Rivera Foundation is named after Genoveva Castro Rivera (1898-1970), mother of Dr. Rebecca Castro Rivera, M.D. and matriarch of the Castro Rivera family. Genoveva (pronounced "hen-o-vev-a") lived a life exemplified by the simple yet powerful value of selfless, service to others by feeding the hungry, educating the poor and offering shelter to the homeless. Almost a half century after her death, Dr. Rebecca has continued to carry on her mother's values by launching a non-profit organization in her name.
