Health Information, Education and Support
The Book Nook:
Marin Community Clinics participates in the nationwide Reach Out and Read program. Pediatric patients, and their siblings and friends who accompany them, may choose a book to take home. It’s our way of encouraging literacy and education. Parents are the first and most important teacher in their children’s lives. We encourage you to read to your children and share the joy of reading with them.
New Moms’ Support Group
The New Moms’ Support Group in Novato has moved to the Novato Wellness Center. New hours are Tuesdays, 10 am – 12 noon.
