YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program
The Diabetes Prevention Program helps adults at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles. Participants will work together in a small group (in person, or through socially-distant platforms like teleconferencing, or virtual meeting platforms) to learn about healthier eating and increasing their physical activity to reduce their risk of developing diabetes.
