YMCA to offer yearlong Diabetes Prevention Program

The YMCA of Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge and South Amboy is offering a Diabetes Prevention Program to people who are at risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.

The program helps individuals 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.

The program is a 12-month lifestyle behavior intervention with 25 sessions delivered over the course of one year. The group meets from 6:30-7:30 p.m. from March 19, 2019, to March 17, 2020, at the Edison YMCA, 1775 Oak Tree Road, Edison.

Participants should check with their health insurance provider as the program may be a covered expense. Participants may also be eligible for YMCA financial assistance.

Participants do not need to be members of the Y to enroll.

For more information about the program, financial assistance, or to see if you qualify, contact Joyce Madee at 732-316-8213 or ydpp@ymcaofmewsa.org.
