Dr. Jean Lau Chin and Gene S. Chin are one of the founding family members who came to support Dr. George L. King establishing the Asian American Diabetes Initiative (AADI) in 2000. They were well respected leaders in Boston Asian-American communities and longtime supporters even before Joslin’s AADI was established. Thanks to their passion for raising awareness about diabetes and healthy living and their dedication to the Asian American community, we have furthered our mission and work since then, not just locally, but also on national and international arenas. Dr. Jean Chin was an international authority on disparity of healthcare. Mr. Gene Chin was a retired engineer. We are deeply saddened by their passing and our heartfelt thoughts are with their family during this most difficult time. We are committed to continue our mission to enhance the quality of life and health outcomes for Asian Americans living with diabetes and its prevention through research, education, outreach and culturally appropriate treatments. And we are committed to continue reaching out to the Asian American communities despite the challenges during this unprecedented time. We will miss their smiles and the way how they inspired everyone who was lucky enough to meet them. And we will remember the significant contributions they have made and promise to carry on their legacy.
