In the first year of programming and neighborhood outreach, health services were identified as an important community concern in Bayview Hunters Point. On June 5th 2015 NOW Hunters Point and the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) hosted Bayview Health Connect. Bayview Health Connect was a community-serving health fair. The event featured free health, wellness, and social services to low-income community members, leveraging SFDPH’s ability to convene multiple service providers. Services offered included western and eastern medicine, dental, vision, massages, mental health services, and information on SSI benefits.
