You might be talking about a couple of different meet ups. One's a JDRF thing at Hoag down on Newport, another is an insulin pump group (Although non-Pumpers go too) in Santa Ana CA. The attendees are around fifty five & up. Haven't been there in a while, I can't drive due to eye damage from premature birth and the Santa Ana on is hard for me to get to.

I'm in Costa Mesa

Hello everyone,

New member, based in OC. Just wanted to say hello to the local "gang". Any meetups in the Orange County area? After digging around on-line, I thought I found one at a local hospital that meets once a month. Anyway, hope all is well.
