Biography

Jane C. Garcia is CEO of La Clínica de la Raza, a network of 22 health clinics serving multilingual and multicultural populations in three East Bay counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, and Solano counties. La Clínica's comprehensive services include pediatrics, family medicine, women's health care, mental health services, dental and vision care and health education. Services are offered regardless of a person's ability to pay or insurance coverage. La Clínica hires health practitioners who fluently speak Spanish, Chinese, Hindi, Arabic, and Amharic. La Clínica also make a concerted effort to recruit doctors, nurses, health educators and other providers who come from the same cultures of patients. Before La Clínica de La Raza was established in 1971, low-income residents in the East Bay had few options available to them for affordable health care. As a result, many were forced to go to the emergency room for problems that could have been avoided with adequate care.
