Vim & Vigor SILVER Sponsor – Operation Samahan!

Posted on September 26, 2017

Thanks to Operation Samahan for returning as a sponsor to the 2017 Vim & Vigor event!

Operation Samahan, Inc., was founded in 1973, when a group of volunteer doctors and nurses met in a barber shop in downtown San Diego. Frustrated by the lack of culturally and linguistically competent health services available to their own family members and communities, they began seeing providing primary care to Filipino and Latino patients, providing primary and preventive health care.

The demand for services rapidly grew, and the group realized this effort would take more organization, full time staff, and a space of their own. Operation Samahan (a Filipino word for “working together”) has since grown to six clinic sites in National City, Mira Mesa, and Rancho Penasquitos and has been a Federally Qualified Health Center since 2013.
