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.  Everyone needs a push, a pat on the back, a helping hand sometimes.  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 with common goals who care about your well-being.

Do you qualify?  To participate in the program you must be:

  • Overweight (BMI greater than 25)
  • Diagnosed with pre-diabetes via one of three blood tests or previous diagnosis of gestational diabetes.  If you don’t have a blood test result, you must have a qualifying risk score.

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program gives you the skills you need and support you deserve to make lasting healthy lifestyle changes.
