Prevent the onset of diabetes with this program.

Diabetes is a chronic disease that causes blood sugar levels to rise higher than normal. Diabetes affects more than 29 million people. A condition called prediabetes occurs when blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough for a type 2 diabetes diagnosis. More than 86 million Americans have prediabetes and are at risk of developing diabetes... 89% of them don't even know they're at risk. Diabetes has no cure, but prediabetes can be reversed.

The YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program is a small group that helps people with prediabetes eat healthier, increase their physical activity and lose weight, which can delay or even prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.

Benefits include:
- Y membership during the program (based on attendance)
- Free sessions with a personal trainer
- Free blood tests through Henry Community Health

The next Diabetes Prevention Program class kick-off is October 15 at 6 pm.
