Seminar: Diabetes in Asian Americans - A Call for Leadership
Amidst a roomful of young, bright, and motivated college students, Dr. Hsu gave an informative seminar about diabetes, obstacles to management, and actions that young people can take to promote healthier lifestyles and raise diabetes awareness. The seminar highlighted some important cultural obstacles such as shame and fear, and how these obstacles impact personal behavior. Dr. Hsu encouraged the students to recognize their talents, nurture their interests, and become involved with the community.
