2011 Art of Giving Gala
The annual Art of Giving Gala is an event to honor an organization or person who represents the mission of the American Diabetes Association: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. In 2011, the ADA honored The Ohio State University Medical Center's Endocrinology Section, as well as Dr. Kwame Osei. The hospital has made a commitment to improve the lives of people living with diabetes and has continually strived to improve their program. Dr. Osei is a longtime volunteer for the American Diabetes Association, has served in many capacities on the area Leadership Board and currently resides on the organization's Advisory Council. Dr. Osei is also the creator and leader of the Global Diabetes Summit, which will be held in Columbus in 2012. He has written numerous journal entries, and was recently awarded a $190,000 research grant by the American Diabetes Association...for one of his many innovative studies to help improve the lives of those living with diabetes.
The event was hosted by 10TV's Andrea Cambern.
