Job Description:

Who we are: La Clnica de La Raza is a community-based health center committed to providing culturally appropriate, high-quality, and accessible health care to the diverse communities of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Many times, this requires that we go outside and provide services in other settings to build the bridge that links individuals to our health center for preventive and primary care.
