YMCA’S 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 of Columbia is the first YMCA in South Carolina to offer this program. The first session of this year-long program will start March 11 at the Downtown YMCA. Email Andrea Ward to learn more.
