Diabetes prevention program starting at the Dale Turner Y in Shoreline

Friday, August 12, 2016

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps adults at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles by eating healthier, increasing physical activity, and losing a modest amount of weight in order to reduce their chances of developing the disease.

Research by the National Institutes of Health has shown that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of new cases of type 2 diabetes by 58% and 71% in adults over age 60.

A group will be starting at the Dale Turner YMCA in Shoreline (192nd and Aurora) on October 11th from 11am-12pm. The group will meet for 16 weeks. Membership is not required to the YMCA, but participants will receive 3 months of free membership by participating in the program.

The program is a lifestyle change program that supports an individualized approach to making nutrition and physical activity changes. A trained lifestyle coach guides group discussion that helps each individual participant outline their own path to achieving the program goals.

The program is FREE but registration is required. To register or ask questions, contact Brie Davis 206-344-3181.
