NCPP Staff tabled at the Daly City Youth Health Center’s 1st Annual Health Fair, titled “Passport to Health.”  During setup, the event seemed like it would get rained out, but the weather soon cleared up and provided a beautiful, sunny day in Daly City.  Many people in the community came by to visit the various tables and get resources, and the event was a great success.
