The Trinbago Progressive Association (TPA) of the U.S.A., Inc was founded in 1989 by the late Dr. George Oliver Phillips and a small group of compatriots. It was incorporated as a Not-for-profit organization in the State of New York.
The organization is established to identify and provide needed services to enhance the quality of life of individuals and families living in the New York Metropolitan area and to institute and organize cultural and social programs for the advancement of the people of Trinidad and Tobago, and of the Caribbean residing in the New York area.
The organization seeks also to recognize and initiate projects to aid the islands of T&T in the areas of health, education and social welfare.
The TPA has sponsored teams of healthcare providers and professionals on nine (9) Medical Mission trips to Trinidad and Tobago an is now preparing for its 10th Mission trip, scheduled for July 15 to July 29, 2018.
On every occasion we provided free medical screenings as well as intensive education and information in dental care, cholesterol monitoring, diabetes management, high blood pressure, substance abuse and HIV/AIDS awareness testing.
