Noted Plastic Surgeon Dr. Peter J. Capizzi partners with Safe Alliance to support victims of domestic violence with the Capizzi MD Foundation.

Dr. Peter J. Capizzi, double-board certified plastic surgeon, and the team at his Capizzi MD practice announce the creation of the Capizzi MD Foundation. Dedicated to supporting organizations that assist people overcoming challenges or trauma, the Capizzi MD Foundation formalizes the ongoing charitable work of Dr. Capizzi and his medical and office staff.

“My practice has always focused on helping my patients reach their personal goals,” said Dr. Peter Capizzi. “I created the Capizzi Foundation in order to extend that mission to organizations that help people live their best lives, even in the face of adversity.”

The Capizzi MD Foundation’s first beneficiary is Safe Alliance, which supports victims of domestic and sexual violence, and helps people build safe, healthy relationships through a continuum of shelter, legal and advocacy services.
