During Venice Family Clinic’s Week of Action, let’s show how we can come together to protect the health of our community and make a difference for people in need. This Action Pack provides inspiration to kick-start your action!

Pick an action, or two or three to do by yourself, with friends, with your school or organization, or with your company. If you haven’t already done so, pledge your support and tell us your plans at or you can email us at

Thank you for taking meaningful steps to help our patients and our community.
