Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP)

CHANGE IS TOUGH—WE CAN HELP
Let’s face it, if change were easy, we’d all do it. You’ve spent years developing habits that you can’t expect to change overnight. It’s tough. We can help. The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program gives you the skills you need and the support you deserve to make lasting healthy lifestyle change. If you’re at risk for type 2 diabetes, you can make small, measurable, changes that can reduce your risk and help you live a happier, healthier life.
