The YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program
helps those at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes adopt and maintain
healthy lifestyles by eating healthier, increasing physical activity and losing
a modest amount of weight in order to reduce their chances of developing type 2
diabetes. This is a 12-month lifestyle behavior intervention with 16 core sessions
followed by monthly maintenance sessions.
Based on research funded by the
National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, this program reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58%.
