Solstice Celebration a Success
This year’s Summer Solstice Celebration, held June 20 at the Marin Art & Garden Center, honored Community Health Champions Dr. Patrick Bennett, Susan Wiebers, and Barbara Cancilla and was attended by over 200 supporters.
With your generosity, we raised $151,163 (including our first-ever Fund-a-Need and live auction, which together raised over $17,000). Proceeds will support patient care, including the Clinics’ Charity Care Fund. Many thanks to our major sponsors: Marin Community Foundation, Sutter Health, and Nancy & Rich Robbins.
Marin Community Clinics Gets High Ratings
The Health Resources & Services Administration, which conducts routine site visits of federally-funded community clinics, recently gave the Clinics an exceptional review. Special “kudos” were given to our patient quality outcomes, including our hypertension and diabetes management.
In April, the Clinics received a $1.37 million Quality Improvement Achievement award from Partnership HealthPlan of California, the insurance plan that serves low-income patients. The award ranks Marin Community Clinics among the top participating community clinics in Northern California.
Supporting Reproductive Health Access
We are proud to support Essential Access Health’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, to be held in San Francisco on September 12 and featuring former US Senator Barbara Boxer.
Founded to expand the availability of family planning services, Essential Access Health is grounded in the belief that the ability to make informed choices is essential for individual and community health and equity. It grants federal family planning funds and provides training to organizations such as ours. We thank them for their support and continued efforts to expand access, promote quality, train the health care workforce, and advance clinical research.
