Scott McAfee and Daniel Goodman are both doctors heading toward retirement. They want to go out with a bang.

McAfee, 67, and Goodman, 71, are two of about three dozen union doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants calling for changes at Community Health Center of Snohomish County, based in Everett. Since the pandemic, the center, like many clinics nationwide, has struggled with an influx of patients and lack of health care providers.
