Title: "COVID-19 Related Info and Self Care FAQs for Asian people with Diabetes"
People with diabetes are severely affected by COVID-19, 30-40% of the hospitalized people with COVID-19 infection have diabetes. This increased risk is even higher if you have high blood pressure and are overweight, as reported both in China, Europe and US. It is crucial for you to take extra efforts for diabetes management in order avoid contracting the infection and for your body to fight the infection if you are exposed by taking some steps, including eating well. Joslin Diabetes Center's Asian American Diabetes Initiative (AADI) and the Asian Clinic have put together resources and created FAQs on self carethat are relevant to Asian communities. Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE), Ka Hei Karen, will go over the summary of these resources and discuss what we can eat to stay healthy during this challenging time.
We are invited back by the Head Start Program in Quincy, to give another talk the Parent Cafe!
Today, we had planned to celebrate the 16th annual A Taste of Ginger event to recognize 20 years of the Asian American Diabetes Initiative (AADI) at Joslin. It is sad that we had to cancel the 16th Taste of Ginger at the MFA. However, AADI is very active and working to help Asian Americans with diabetes locally and nationally. Locally, the Asian Clinic is still very active and Drs. King, Hou and Ganda, Ms. Karen Lau, CDE and dietitian and Ms. Julia Li are using telehealth to communicate with our patients. Ms. Chihiro Sato is also active with outreach efforts in collaborations with the Mass. Department of Health regarding diabetes. We are active on the web and nationally in the following way: Asian-American Diabetes Initiative (AADI); AADI with the help of Ms. Chihiro Sato, Karen Lau, Julia Li and Drs. Om Ganda and King have posted on Joslin web suggestions for increasing intensive lifestyle and medical care for people with diabetes, especially of Asian descent, in light of COVID-19 viral epidemic. This post is translated into Japanese (by Ms. Chihiro Sato), Korean (by Dr. Kyoungmin Park), Chinese (Traditional, by Ms. I-Hsien Wu, and Simplified by Dr. Qian Li), and soon in other Asian languages. In addition, it has links to many other articles or lectures on COVID-19 related to diabetes by leaders in diabetes from many Asian countries. In fact almost all the lecturers were previous Joslin fellows. This post will be sent to all health agencies, associations and community centers that serve or have predominate Asian-American followings in the US. Since AADI leads the largest coalition of AA organizations with focus on diabetes, this post will be read by and, hopefully, help many people. I hope this gives you an update of AADI activities during this difficult time. Stay well! Best,George George L. King MDProfessor of Medicine and OphthalmologyHarvard Medical SchoolChief Scientific OfficerJoslin Diabetes Center

It is with mixed emotions that I am writing to let you know that I will be leaving my clinical, research and education staff positions at Joslin Diabetes Center. I will be taking on a new position in California to pursue the next phase of my professional development. This has been a very difficult decision for me. However, I'd like to thank you for letting me be a part of your health care team. I know that I will leave your diabetes care in the hands of a trusted and capable team at Joslin. My last day in the clinic will be August 29th, 2019.
If you do not already have an appointment scheduled for follow-up care with your new provider, please call the Asian Clinic (617) 309-3444 to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
If you do choose to seek your diabetic care outside the Diabetes Center, Joslin will provide your new healthcare provider with your medical information upon your request and written authorization.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing me to be involved in your medical care. It has certainly been a privilege and honor being your physician. I wish you and your family much good health and happiness.
