DIABETES PREVENTION PROGRAM

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps adults at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes reduce their risk for developing the disease by taking steps that will improve their overall health and well-being. Research by the National Institutes of Health has shown that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of new cases of type 2 diabetes by 58% and 71% in adults over the age of 60. The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program uses a CDC-approved curriculum and is part of the CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program. 

This one-year program is $429 and consists of 25 sessions (sessions 1-16 meet every week; 17-19 meet every two weeks; 20-25 meet every month). A one-year YMCA membership is included. Scholarships are available for those who qualify.

To participate in the program, you must be diagnosed with prediabetes with a blood test and be overweight with a BMI > 25. If you don’t have a blood test result, take this risk assessment quiz to see if you’re eligible.
