Informed Families Catalyst
Exciting News from Informed Families and Publix Pharmacy! We are thrilled to announce a dynamic collaboration that's set to make a monumental impact on prescription drug safety—the formidable partnership between Informed Families and Publix Pharmacy in support of the national Lock Your Meds campaign.
At Informed Families, we're committed to helping Florida's children grow up safe, healthy, and drug-free. An area of growing concern is the misuse of prescription drugs among youth. As parents and guardians, you play a crucial role in preventing this issue. This guide offers practical advice and resources to help you safeguard your children against prescription drug misuse.
In our cozy homes, amidst the bustle of daily life, lies a hidden danger often overlooked: unsecured medications. While we diligently lock our doors and guard our online information, our medicine cabinets may not receive the same attention. Informed Families' Lock Your Meds Campaign shines a spotlight on this pressing issue.

As we welcome the new year, I want to begin by honoring the memory of a beloved member of our community, Virginia Smith Mead, known affectionately as Ginger or Gigi. Ginger, a vibrant soul and a passionate advocate for community service passed away peacefully on December 2, 2023. Her lifelong commitment to bettering the lives of those around her, including her significant support for Informed Families, has left an indelible mark on our organization and those we serve. Our deepest condolences go to the Mead family, as we celebrate Ginger’s remarkable life and legacy.
As we culminate our 2022-2023 Year in Review, we at Informed Families are overjoyed to share some standout statistics that encapsulate the hard work and dedication of our team and community partners over the past year.
The holiday season is a special time for family bonding and creating lasting memories. As we navigate this festive period, it's important to find ways to strengthen our family connections and instill positive values in our children.
President's Message - December 2023
With deep sorrow, I announce the passing of Colonel Frank Borman, a founding member of Informed Families.
Creating holiday crafts with kids is more than just a fun activity; it's an opportunity for family bonding, which is crucial for the healthy development of children and teens. At Informed Families, we understand the significance of family togetherness in reducing the risk of substance abuse among young people. Parental involvement is indeed the most potent weapon in preventing substance abuse among youth.
As we exit the Thanksgiving season, it's crucial to keep the spirit of thankfulness alive in our families, especially among our children. It's a vital time to remind them not to forget the blessings they have and to continuously recognize and appreciate the good in their lives. This ongoing practice of gratitude can profoundly impact their perspective and overall well-being, making every day a chance to see the world through a lens of thankfulness.
