YMCA of Austin's Diabetes Prevention Program
The YMCA of Austin's Diabetes Prevention Program helps you take control of your health by adopting habits to reduce your chances of developing type 2 diabetes and improve your overall health and well-being. Research by the National Institutes of Health has proven that programs like the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of cases of type 2 diabetes by nearly 60 percent.
The program, which is led by a trained Lifestyle Coach in a classroom setting, is delivered over a 12-month period, beginning with 16 weekly sessions followed by monthly maintenance. For more information, please contact Mashariki Cannon at 512-542-9622 ext. 218 or visit www.austinymca.org.
