The A Spoonful of Ginger event program promotes awareness and raises funds for Joslin’s Asian American Diabetes Initiative (AADI). The AADI works to enhance the quality of life and health outcomes for the rising number of Asian Americans living with diabetes. For over a decade, the AADI has made substantial advances in research, education, outreach and culturally appropriate treatments.

Each year, the event draws hundreds of supporters who gather to enjoy an extraordinary cultural and culinary experience which includes the opportunity to taste the cuisine and meet some of Boston’s most celebrated chefs, including Joanne Chang, Jose Duarte and Jasper White.

Co-Chairs: C. Richard and Deborah Carlson, Wesley Chen and Summer Xia are committed to the success of A Spoonful of Ginger and the mission of the AADI.

Honoree: Jennifer K. Sun, MD, MPH will be recognized for her contribu­tions to the AADI’s mission and her active role within the Asian American community. Dr. Sun is an Ophthalmologist at Beetham Eye Institute and Investigator in the Section on Vascular Biology, Joslin Diabetes Center, and Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School.

About the Asian American Diabetes Initiative (AADI):
In response to the rising rates of diabetes in the Asian American population and the lack of culturally relevant research, clinical care, and education, Joslin Research Director, George L. King, MD, and supporters of Joslin Diabetes Center established the AADI in 2000.
