The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 1 in 3 American adults have prediabetes and most, about 90%, do not even know it. Completing a quick survey can determine whether or not you are at risk. Prevention is the only cure for diabetes.
The YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program is a year long educational course that aims to help adults who have been diagnosed with prediabetes or are at risk for Type 2 diabetes make lifestyle changes that can help them avoid or delay onset of the diabetes.
This group uses a CDC-approved curriculum to teach you how making small changes can help you live a happier, healthier life. It offers motivation and support and is open to all individuals regardless of insurance or Y membership status. Registration is required. Financial assistance is available to those who qualify.
