WHO WE ARE

STRIVE San Diego!, a program of Operation Samahan, Inc. (OSI), works closely with restaurants, farmers markets, and grocery stores to improve nutrition and promote healthy living. As part of the San Diego Asian/Pacific Islander (SDAPI) Health Network,  our goal is to reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease amongst the Asian/Pacific Islander (API) community. This network of community-based organizations in San Diego aims to improve API health outcomes and increase community voice.

Through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Community Health (DCH), STRIVE San Diego! was part of a select group of community-based organizations funded to provide a high impact program to reduce health disparities in API communities.
