LET'S TALK ABOUT HEALTH ... The City of Palo Alto and the Palo Alto Family YMCA will hold the third annual Community Health Fair at Mitchell Park, 3700 Middlefield Road, on Saturday, Sept. 10. The event, which is open to people of all ages, includes classes and talks on fitness and nutrition along with free health screenings. This year's event will focus on specific topics, said Lee Pfab, executive director of the Palo Alto Family YMCA. "Our three themes are diabetes prevention, sports injury prevention and emotional health and well-being," she said. There will be a suicide-prevention training course organized by Project Safety Net, a collaborative dedicated to preventing youth suicide.
