Floridians are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as thousands of people suffer from the disease, and many others may have diabetes and not know it! It is estimated that one out of every three children born after 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Jacksonville office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease.
We are here to help you.
Camp JADA – New Location
June 10-13, 2013
Camp JADA will be held at The Bolles School San Jose Campus. Camp is a four day camp for children ages 6 to 12 with diabetes, and campers have the option of bringing a sibling or friend without diabetes. Camp JADA provides the excitement and activities of a typical summer camp, while creating a greater awareness of diabetes. Through games, activities and interactive education, campers will learn how to become more comfortable with the physical and emotional challenges that are associated with diabetes.
