Diabetes Parent Support Network

Are you the parent of a child or teen who has type 1 diabetes? Are you looking for a way to connect with parents who have experienced what you’re going through, or a way to help someone get through where you have been?

Join with other parents who have children/teens with type 1 diabetes. The network offers positive support, interaction and education for parents/caregivers, children and teens with type 1 diabetes. Meetings are held at CHOP’s main campus six times a year (Saturday morning 9 to 11 a.m.). 

Sibshops at CHOP

For brothers and sisters, because we think they're important!

Who are Sibshops for? Sibshops are for 6- to 12-year-old brothers and sisters of children who have a special health care need or challenge.

When and Where? We meet six times a year at the Main Campus.

Why? Sibshops provide brothers and sisters with the opportunity to meet and talk with other kids who really know what it's like to have a sibling with special healthcare needs or a disability. They'll have an opportunity to talk about the good and not-so-good parts of their family life, but most importantly they'll have fun making new friends, playing games, assembling crafts, and more!

Parents are invited to spend time in a group focusing on sibling issues and the challenges of meeting the needs of all their children.

For more information about SibShops or to register your child, please email brothersandsisters@email.chop.edu or contact Jessica Mono, MSS,LCSW at 267-426-2329 or monoj@email.chop.edu.

Light refreshments are served.
