Because of social and economic inequities that exist in Marin, low-income residents and people of color are more likely to struggle with poor health than their higher-income counterparts. We know that individuals with access to quality, affordable, and culturally appropriate health services are more likely to lead healthier lives. We also recognize that good health starts long before one needs medical care. Health is impacted by the social and environmental context in which we live, work, learn, and play.

To that end, we will seek to support efforts that increase opportunities for individuals and families to live long, healthy lives, regardless of their income, education, and ethnic, or racial background.

Our goal? To foster well-being and the ability for every person to enjoy a long, quality life.
