YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps those at high risk adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles and reduce their chances of developing type 2 diabetes.

The program is based on the landmark Diabetes Prevention Program funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which showed that by eating healthier, increasing physical activity and losing a small amount of weight, a person with pre-diabetes can prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes by 58% and 71% in individuals over the age of 60.

The YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program is a year-long program, consisting of 19 sessions in the first six months and 6 sessions in the last six months. In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach will help you change your lifestyle through topics such as healthy eating, physical activity, overcoming stress, how to stay motivated, and more!
