Diabetes Prevention Program

 

Diabetes is one of the nation’s costliest diseases. Preventing diabetes can save health care costs and save lives.

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps those at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles by eating healthier, increasing physical activity and losing a modest amount of weight in order to reduce their chances of developing the disease. Based on research funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the program reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58%.



Mission Statement: To put Christian Principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
