YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program

You Can Take Control


The YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program is an evidence-based program that uses a group lifestyle intervention designed to reduce the risk of diabetes in individuals with pre-diabetes or at high risk for type-2 diabetes. This program has been proven to cut people's chances of developing the disease by more than half. You do not need to be a YMCA member to participate.
