WORKING TOGETHER, LIVING BETTER
Diabetes Prevention program at the Emerson Family YMCA. You can reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes
and gain tools for healthy living. The YMCA’s 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 the disease.
In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach facilitates a small group of participants in learning about
healthier eating, physical activity and other behavior changes over the course of 16 one-hour sessions.
Topics covered include healthier eating, getting started with physical activity, overcoming stress, staying
motivated, and more. After the initial 16 core sessions, participants meet monthly for added support to
help them maintain their progress. Classes Begin on Wednesday August 1st from 7:00 - 8:00pm.
