DIABETES PREVENTION PROGRAM

 

Can you measure a healthy life? Yes - by the cup, ounce & block. 

If you’re at risk for type 2 diabetes, you can make small, measurable changes that can reduce your risk and help you live a happier, healthier life.

 

CHANGE IS TOUGH—WE CAN HELP!

Let’s face it, if change were easy, we’d all do it. You’ve spent years developing habits that you can’t expect to change overnight. It’s tough. We can help.

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program gives you the skills needed and the support you deserve to make lasting, healthy lifestyle changes in order to reduce your chances of developing the disease. 

 

GROUP SUPPORT KEEPS YOU MOTIVATED

A little encouragement goes a long way when you’re making big changes. In the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program, you’ll spend a year surrounded by a group of supportive people who care about your well-being.

A trained lifestyle coach facilitates the small group of participants in learning about healthier eating, physical activity and other behavior changes over 25 sessions delivered over the course of one year. 

 

IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH, BOOST YOUR ENERGY

To help reduce your risk for diabetes, your goal in the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program is to reduce your body weight by 7% and increase your physical activity by at least 150 minutes per week within the first half of the program.

Lose weight, boost your energy, reduce your risk for diabetes and improve your health for life!

 

 

DO YOU QUALIFY?

To participate in the program, you must be:

  • 18 years or older.
  • Overweight (BMI ≥ 25)*, and
