Palo Alto Clinic: Stories from the Physicians

October 2, 2022
2:00 - 4:00 pm
In person at the Mitchell Park Community Center, El Palo Alto Room

The Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF) has been a presence in Palo Alto for over 90 years. What started as the "Palo Alto Clinic", which then became the "Palo Alto Medical Clinic", has had to evolve with the times and the growth of the population. What was once a small building on the corner of Homer Avenue and Bryant Street would grow to encompass the entire block and also occupy many satellite buildings amid the neighborhood before finally moving to El Camino Real in 1999.

Join us on Sunday, October 2, with pediatrician Ross DeHovitz MD, cardiologist Joel Friedman MD, and family physician Mary Hufty MD, to hear about some of the important and fascinating moments in the history of "the clinic".
