YMCA'S DIABETES PREVENTION PROGRAM

  • Classroom-based - can be offered in any community setting 
  • Learn about healthier eating and increasing physical activity to reduce risk

This course is valued at $450, but we can offer it FREE OF COST. The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program has been made available to everyone in the community, thanks in part to funding from the Older Americans Act as granted by BayPath Elder Services, Inc.
