About Us

About SSG

The Asian and Pacific Islander Obesity Prevention Alliance (APIOPA) is a division of Special Service for Groups. SSG is a Los Angeles based non-profit organization that provides community-based solutions, encouraging community involvement and self-sufficiency, to the social and economic issues facing those in greatest need. SSG serves as a bridge between people with common needs across traditional ethnic, racial, and other cultural boundaries to identify ways to pool resources by developing and managing programs which serve our many communities.

History

Disaggregated API Data

In 2007, the California Physical Fitness Testing Program collected disaggregated API ethnic data among 5th, 7th, and 9th graders. At seeing this, Sanaa Shabbir, a UCLA MPH candidate and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health intern, partnered with APIOPA to analyze and report her findings on API childhood obesity in Los Angeles County. In November 2008, Sanaa presented her research to representatives from public entities and community organizations all over Los Angeles County. Her research revealed overwhelming obesity incidence in Pacific Islander and South Asian communities specifically. Sanaa’s findings will be used to guide future obesity prevention projects.
