SFMS Advocates for Public Health Protections to Help Prevent Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Stroke

Today, the SFMS joined the American Heart Association and other public health experts in a press briefing in support of World Health Day and San Francisco’s sugar-sweetened beverage warning label for advertisements legislation.

The City’s warning label ordinance, endorsed by SFMS, is widely recognized as a consumer-friendly tool to increase health awareness and information. Supervisor Scott Wiener and Dean Schillinger, MD, from the UCSF Diabetes Center highlighted the importance of educating communities and consumers most negatively impacted by sugary drinks. SFMS was represented by board member John Maa, MD, and UCSF medical students.
