Change Today For A Healthier Future
You can reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes and gain tools for healthy living.
If you are at risk for type 2 diabetes, the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program provides a supportive environment where you can work with others in a small group setting to learn how to adopt healthy habits to reduce your chances of developing the disease.
The program, which is led by a trained Lifestyle Coach in a classroom setting, is delivered over a 12-month period, beginning with 16 weekly sessions followed by monthly maintenance. You will learn strategies for eating healthier, increasing your physical activity and making other changes that will improve your overall health and well-being. National Institutes of Health research has proven that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of cases of type 2 diabetes by almost 60%. The program fee is $429 for Members and Potential Members (includes 15 week Adult Membership). Many insurance providers and medical flexible spending programs cover the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program, check with your benefits administrator for details on your coverage. Financial Assistance is available.
