YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program

YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program

The YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program is specifically for people who are overweight and have "pre-diabetes" or are at risk for acquiring Type 2 diabetes. It is group-based and delivered over 16, one-hour core sessions facilitated by a trained Lifestyle Coach. We’ll cover nutrition, physical activity and behavior modification. Monthly maintenance meetings follow the core sessions.

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 developing 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.
