A HEALTHY COMMUNITY While Marin County is largely an idyllic place to
live, it contains communities where the economic disparity is particularly jarring. Community
Health Hubs are a community-driven attempt to address some of the fallout from that gap. The
Hubs — the first opened in 2013 at Marin Community Clinic’s (MCC)
Novato location, the second last August in the Canal area of San
Rafael — provide physical, psychological and economic support in the neighborhoods where
they’re based. The Novato Hub offers food to more than 300 households per week; activities
like yoga; and monthly diabetes, hypertension and obesity screenings (and referrals) — all of it
free to low-income residents. “The Community Health Hub is a unique and wonderful example
of a partnership between three key Marin nonprofits: LIF T-Levántate, the Marin Community
Clinics and the San Francisco/Marin Food
Bank,” says Richard Waxman, executive
director of LIF T-Levántate. The most impor-
tant aspect of the Health Hubs, he adds, is the
receptive, positive environment; with services
that are entirely multicultural and multilin-
gual, the Hubs transform a clinic visit into a
neighborhood event. “We want the commu-
nity to see MCC as their ‘health home,’ ” says
Linda Tavaszi, CEO of MCC. “Many are more
receptive to health education and screening in
a familiar environment.”
