Diabetes Prevention Program

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps you take control of your health by adopting habits to reduce your chances of developing type 2 diabetes and improve your overall health and well-being. Research by the National Institutes of Health has proven that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of cases of type 2 diabetes by nearly 60%.

We encourage everyone to take control of their health and learn if they are at risk for type 2 diabetes.  Click to Take the Diabetes Risk Assessment. 

The Program
The program provides a supportive environment where participants work together in a small group to learn about healthier eating and increasing their physical activity in order to reduce their risk for developing diabetes. The program, which is led by a trained Lifestyle Coach in a classroom setting, is delivered over a 12-month period, beginning with 16 weekly sessions followed by monthly maintenance.

In order to qualify for the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program, participants must be at least 18 years old, overweight (BMI ≥ 25) and at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes or have been diagnosed with prediabetes. (Individuals who have already been diagnosed with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes do not qualify for this program.)

A LOOK AT "US"

When our communities are strong, our country is strong.  But right now, the bonds that hold us together are fraying and we need a place to make them whole.  In Racine County, the Y is that place.  It fills the gaps, bridges our divides, and gives us common ground to stand on.  But they can't do it without your support.  Donate today for a better us tomorrow.
