Rita Kagan was there in Dr. Robin Lowitz’s kitchen when the Jewish Community Free Clinic was born 10 years ago.

“We sat around, and we said, ‘How do we do this?’ ” said Kagan, a Cotati registered nurse.

Led by Lowitz, a Sebastopol physician, and bolstered by dozens of volunteers, the clinic for patients who cannot pay for services opened in November 2001 in a refurbished room at Cotati’s La Plaza Park.
