Thank you so much to our Founding Sponsor:

South Cove Community Health Center was incorporated in 1972 by a group of volunteers in response to the inadequate provision of primary care services for the local residents in Boston Chinatown due to their language and cultural differences.  Today, more than 40 years later, South Cove runs four clinics and an after-school program in the greater Boston area with over 250 employees, serving approximately 32,000 patients annually.
