Dangers of high blood pressure shared with Alcantara Court residents
Every month the residents of Alcantara Court have ‘community meetings.’ Speakers are often invited. At this community meeting students from the San Francisco State University Nursing Program make a presentation about the warning signs of high blood pressure. The quiz included in the talk helped dispel the stereotypes about who is most at risk for high blood pressure. The talk was presented in English and Spanish. One of the nursing students translated for a Chinese resident. The SFSU instructor — a registered nurse — coached the students and answered more detailed questions from the residents.

Coalition of organizations mobilizes to give community input on how the Mission’s share of Proposition A funds should be spent towards affordable housing
More than 125 people crowded into a second-floor auditorium at 474 Valencia St., San Francisco to vote on the use of $50 million allocated by the November 2015 election to help ease the affordable housing crisis in the Mission District.
After two hours of presentation and deliberation, those in attendance opted to prioritize a “buy now, build now” strategy that would see those funds go towards acquiring two or three medium-sized plots and building some 200 units of fully affordable housing in the next five to seven years.
