Marc Russell, Chair
Marc came to the CIC board in 2018, seeking to apply his career in corporate and non-profit finance in a volunteer role for an organization that directly serves its community. He served for two years as Treasurer, helping CIC and SIEAM navigate significant transitions, before being elected Board Chair. Having benefited personally from Traditional Chinese Medicine as taught at SIEAM, and seeing the potential for CIC's clinic model to provide effective, low-cost health care to under-served communities and unmatched instruction to SIEAM's students, Marc believes firmly in the mission of the organization. Outside of his professional and volunteer activities, Marc is a lover of the outdoors, and can be found out and about with his family biking, hiking, backpacking, or camping.
