By May 18, 2018November 24th, 2020No Comments

Every year, Marin Community Clinics seems to accomplish more and more, and 2017 was another banner year. We continue to grow in response to increasing community need and are proud of our accomplishments.

In 2017, we experienced a leadership transition. My thanks to Linda Tavaszi, who served as CEO for six years, for her visionary leadership. We are pleased that Linda continues to be a supportive member of the “MCC family.”

We are so appreciative of the contributions and passion that our providers, staff, volunteers, and our donors bring to our work – you make it happen!
