DIABETES PREVENTION

This 12-month program helps overweight adults at risk for type 2 diabetes reduce their risk of developing the disease by taking steps to improve overall health and well-being. Participants work together in a small group facilitated by a trained Y lifestyle coach to achieve the program goals of reducing individual weight by 7 percent and building up to 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week for the purpose of reducing their risk for developing diabetes.
