It was a pleasure to connect with Chihiro Sato from Joslin Diabetes Center's Asian American Diabetes Initiative (AADI). For the past decade, she has served as a bilingual public health advocate, outreaching to diverse communities and providing health intervention and wellness programs, for the rising number of Asian Americans living with diabetes. As a former business consultant in Tokyo, Chihiro uses her business expertise to think outside the box when comes to empowering communities through culturally appropriate education about diabetes management and its prevention. She strongly believes that it is just as important to educate and interact with patients and members of the community as it is to engage healthcare professionals.
Chihiro is passionate about creating a variety of programs that can be easily adopted by the needs of each community. She enjoys meeting people and listening to their stories, which inspire her to develop and provide programs and tools to encourage healthier and happier lives.
