Diabetes Support Group Meetings

Offer information, guidance, and support to adults and children with diabetes, and to parents of children with the disease. Free support group meetings, offered by diabetes centers and educators, are available throughout the Palm Beach County area. The JDF Support Group meets bi-monthly on the fourth Thursday of the month, 6:00-7:30 p.m., at the North County Regional Library in Palm Beach Gardens. The meeting includes information and research updates, group discussion, special interest topics such as nutrition, and guest speakers knowledgeable in the management and treatment of diabetes. For a complete listing of area Diabetes Support Groups and Educational Classes, please contact the chapter office.

Keeping Informed

JDF memberships are an excellent way to keep informed of the latest breakthroughs in diabetes treatment and technology. And your donation goes towards a good cause . . . to fund diabetes research! Included in your annual membership is Countdown magazine, JDF's informative, quarterly diabetes news magazine. To obtain your membership form, and/or to get your name on the Greater Palm Beach County chapter database to receive free newsletters on events and diabetes news in your area, please call the chapter office.

Fifty 50 Pharmacy

Now you can purchase your medications and supplies through the mail, and support diabetes research at the same time! Fifty 50 Pharmacy, a mail order supply and prescription drug source, donates one-half of all of its proceeds to JDF and diabetes research. All of your prescription needs are handled over the phone by courteous customer representatives, who even file insurance claims for you. Why leave the house again for pharmaceutical supplies?
