San Mateo County AOD Partnerships Quarterly Meeting in East Palo Alto 8-21-2014

NCPP staff attended the quarterly meeting of the San Mateo County funded Alcohol & Other Drug (AOD) partnerships yesterday to discuss and brainstorm the adoption of an alcohol retail signage campaign initiated by the Drug-Free Communities funded Saving Lives Coalition from Southern California.  Representatives from the San Mateo AOD partnerships weighed in about adding additional languages and tailoring the sign’s messaging and format to suit the communities we serve in San Mateo County.  This is the start of a great effort to improve communication and relationships with alcohol merchants to prevent youth access to alcohol at the retail level.
