The program provides free screening and health education services with an emphasis on heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.

Local Government's Challenge - Striving for Sustainability
Glen Rojas, former Menlo Park City Manager will speak at Kiwanis Luncheon on Tuesday, March 13 from 12 to 1:15 pm at Allied Arts Guild .

Menlo Park, like most local government agencies, is striving to change in order to meet the challenges of sustainability. Local government must be prepared for the changes taking place in our communities including the way elected officials are elected. Recently the City of Menlo Park was forced to change district elections due to a threatened law suit that was made in August 2017. What are the implications of this change both positive and challenges? What other changes are on the horizon?
