The San Diego Association of Physicians of Indian Origin was formed to bring together physicians, dentists, scientists, and allied health practitioners of Indian heritage, residing in San Diego and the neighboring areas.
The association is organized for scientific, educational socio-cultural, and charitable purposes.
Established in 1997 by Dr. Manju Goel and Dr. Krishna Goyal, SAPI aims to support local communities and bridge access to medical care. To celebrate India's 50th Anniversary of Independence in 1997, SAPI held its first health fair, providing blood sugar, cholesterol, osteoporosis, and vision checks, and dental screenings. SAPI has blossomed into a trusted source of community for both physicians and allied health professionals and the greater Indian community by providing education, resources, and hosting social events.
