In Tribute to Our Barbara Jacobowitz

Barbara is recognized as the founding member of the Diabetes Coalition of Palm Beach County and in that role, always remained steadfast in her commitment to the Coalition’s mission and vision, serving as the Board of Directors Chair and Chair of the Data Resource Committee.

On Sunday, July 7, 2019 Barbara passed away. Although not with us now, Barbara will always surround us with her vibrant and beautiful spirit – challenging us to strengthen and carry on her incredible legacy.

The Diabetes Coalition has established a permanent memorial fund in Barbara’s honor. Donations will fund scholarships, diabetes camp registrations, and help us to provide free diabetes screenings and prevention/self-management educational programs throughout Palm Beach County.

We remain committed to continuing Barbara’s work and ours. Through your generous donation, we will be able to build upon Barbara’s incredible legacy and giving spirit.
