Did you know that being overweight and physically inactive puts you at risk for diabetes and that you could be at risk and not even know it? In fact, over 86 million Americans have prediabetes but only 10% know that they have it.

We want to help through the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program. This program can help you learn how to make simple changes to lose weight, live healthier, and hopefully avoid the onset of the disease. A trained lifestyle coach provides facilitated group support and guidance on tactics to improve eating habits, physical activity and other life choices over the course of 25 one-hour sessions..

Please join us at one of our upcoming free informational sessions to learn how we can help you get on the path to a healthier life.
