IMG Helps

As the need for healthcare and other specialized services grew, the leadership of the Independent Medical Group, Inc. meet and agreed to create IMG HELPS, Inc. (a nonprofit) to help bridge the emerging gaps for healthcare and other specialized services. IMG HELPS, established in March 2020, provides an array of healthcare and specialty services to individuals, families, and communities in Florida.

He founded what he calls the Rodney McGruder Sports Business Initiative , a program he developed for middle schoolers in an effort to show them that sports can be their career — but the emphasis is on everything but playing. He's exposing them to all the other options they would have in sports, everything from being an agent to a financial planner to working in media. TAPS Good Grief Camp is an annual event for children who have lost a loved one who served in the Armed Forces, throughout Memorial Day Weekend the children share and learn coping skills through games, crafts and other activities in a fun and supportive environment.
