DIABETES PREVENTION PROGRAM
Advance and Enhance Your Life
Diabetes is not a problem in the United States, it’s an epidemic. More than 29 million people in the U.S. have diabetes. What’s astounding is that the number of people with pre-diabetes is 86 million. Experts agree that unless these adults take steps to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes, most of them will develop this incurable disease within 10 years.
The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps adults at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes reduce their risk of developing the disease by taking steps that will improve their overall health and well-being.
The goal is to help participants reduce their body weight by 7 percent and increase their activity level to 150 minutes per week by providing:
- Yearlong instruction in a classroom setting – 16 weekly sessions, plus additional bi-weekly and monthly sessions.
- Healthy living practices – Learn about portion control, discover healthier foods and increase your physical activity.
- So much more!
