Less Soda, Better Health/ Menos Soda, Mejor Salud provides information on the negative health effects as a result of overconsumption of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB's). They do this by tabling at events, doing group presentations, and through one-on-one education.
They are building a campaign in Stockton dedicated to improving the health of the community. Soda and other sweetened beverages are causing a diabetes crisis here in the city, and they are organizing to do something about it. When soda is the biggest cause of diabetes, and 36% of people in the San Joaquin Valley are diabetic or pre-diabetic, the community has to respond.
They educate the community on the facts of soda and diabetes, create opportunities for the residents in Stockton to get involved, and are building a coalition of people to do something about this. They have ideas for solutions.
