Thank you for considering diabetes prevention and the Y as an important part of your patient’s care! Based on research from the National Institutes of Health, programs like YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program reduce new cases of type 2 diabetes by 58% overall and 71% in individuals over age 60.
The program focuses on small, measurable goals to give participants confidence they can make the necessary changes to reduce their risk for type 2 diabetes. The group support keeps participants motivated. You can feel confident that the patients you refer will spend a year surrounded by supportive people with common goals. In addition, after your patient enrolls in the program, you will receive regular updates concerning his or her progress.
