YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program

Diabetes is a serious health condition that can lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, high blood pressure, and blindness.  If you have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, or believe you may be at risk for developing the disease, the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program can help you develop a healthier lifestyle and work with you to reduce the risks the condition can pose to your health.  Through the program you will receive support and encouragement from both a trained lifestyle health coach and fellow classmates as you develop a plan for improving and maintaining you overall well-being.  We are currently gathering names for the up-coming classes, so if you are interested, please contact Cassie Ruby or Ellen Hogeland at the Y (785) 825.2151.
