The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps those at high risk adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles and reduce their chances of developing type 2 diabetes

In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach will help you change your lifestyle by learning about healthy eating, physical activity and other behavior changes over the course of 16 one-hour sessions. Topics covered include nutrition, getting started with physical activity, overcoming stress, staying motivated, and more. After the initial 16 core sessions, you will meet monthly for up to a year for added support to help maintain your progress.

  • Evidence-based to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes by 58%.
  • The program emphasizes two primary goals: reduce body weight by 7% and increase physical activity by 150 minute per week.

To sign up, participants must be:

  1. At least 18 years old;
  2. Overweight (BMI ≥25) AND diagnosed with prediabetes via a blood test of gestational diabetes.
  3. If a blood test is not available, can qualify based on risk factors.
