Dear Marin Community Clinics Family,
Welcome to our first newsletter of the year – and not just any year: I’m thrilled to announce that 2022 marks Marin Community Clinics’ 50th anniversary! Fifty years ago, the Clinics was founded by a small team of volunteer physicians and nurses working from a church basement.
Today, with our modern technology and facilities, exceptional team of physicians and nurses, and sophisticated treatment and preventative care services, almost everything has changed. Everything except for the basic principle by which we were founded back in 1972: the belief that everyone should have access to quality healthcare.
Our founders would be proud of where we are today – still guided by that same belief, and on the brink of expanding access to our services even further. So this year, join me in celebrating not just our own accomplishments, but those that helped get us here, and those leading the way for a healthier future in Marin: our staff, volunteers, community partners, and donors.
This is a special year, and I hope to see you at one of our events!
