An important piece of history will be sealed away for future generations on Oct. 11, when the Santa Cruz Community Health Center, formerly known as the Santa Cruz Women’s Health Clinic, buries a time capsule in their newly opened East Cliff Family Health Center.
The Health Center has unique roots. In 1974, 14 UC Santa Cruz students founded the Health Center’s first iteration, called the Women’s Health Collective. The Collective was founded on feminist healthcare principals, meaning “equality, providing healthcare for anyone and everyone,” says board member Joan Burns.
