Summer Solstice Celebration History

By November 11, 2020November 24th, 2020No Comments

Marin Community Clinics has provided compassionate and comprehensive health care to ALL residents of Marin County for more than 45 years. We have grown from humble beginnings where volunteer physicians and nurses saw patients in church basements, to a 21st century provider with modern facilities, highly expert paid physicians and nurses, the latest technology, and sophisticated diagnostic, treatment and prevention programs. Today, we serve over 38,000 individuals every year in our various clinics spread throughout Marin County.

We count on the support of our donors and community partners like YOU to help us provide these vital services and upgrades.

Summer Solstice Celebration

On a beautiful Summer Solstice evening in 2002, then Supervisor Susan Adams PhD, RN, started an event to support the Marin Children’s Health Initiative, which was a partnership of agencies; Marin Community Clinics, the Coastal Health Alliance and CalKids, that filled the gap for hard working families in Marin who could not afford medical care or private health insurance and who could not qualify for public insurance programs. The event was adopted by Marin Community Clinics in 2005 with Susan’s blessing to continue the support for the under-served in our community. Now, more than 10 years later, Marin Community Clinics has grown to serve so many Marin residents as their primary “Health Home.”
