OUR MISSION To provide a service oriented educational and philanthropic organization to serve the medical profession and address issues affecting the community. ALAPIO is a non-profit organization founded in 2013. ALAPIO aims to provide health and well-being for all, particularly those who cannot afford it. ALAPIO is a service oriented educational and philanthropic organization aiming to serve the medical community and address issues affecting the public at large. ALAPIO has grown rapidly with an impressive membership from both academia and private practice. Membership is open to all physicians and allied practitioners from allopathic, naturopathic, osteopathic, homeopathic and other disciplines. Our association consists primarily of physicians of South Asian origin residing in Los Angeles and surrounding areas of Southern California, although membership is open to members from all backgrounds. We believe that as a collective group of professionals we have benefited tremendously from the society we live in. We all have a deep desire to help our fellow citizens with our cumulative resources and formed the Association of Los Angeles Physicians of Indian Origin to do so.
