SFCCC Board of Directors Endorses Local Initiative to Tax Sugar Sweetened Beverages

  Research has shown that Sugar Sweetened Beverages offer no nutritional value and are linked to risks for obesity, diabetes and heart disease.   Patients served by SFCCC and its member clinics are disproportionately impacted by these diseases.

 

 

Therefore, the San Francisco Community Clinic Consortium Board of Directors has voted to endorse a Sugar Sweetened Beverage Tax submitted by several members of the Board of Supervisors for the November, 2016 ballot.  For more information, please go to
