Diabetes Prevention begins in July

The YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program

a new initiative that promotes healthy lifestyles to prevent a common disease:

The program, a national campaign to promote healthy lifestyles to help reduce individuals’ chances of developing diabetes, will be offered in the Philadelphia area by the YMCA of Philadelphia & Vicinity. The evidence-based initiative consists of a 16-week class curriculum followed by regular monthly check-ins, with the goal of reducing participants’ body weights and increasing their physical activity to reduce the risk of developing the disease. And based on research funded by the National Institutes of Health, the program has been shown to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by as much as 58%.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 11.1% of adults living in Philadelphia County are diagnosed with diabetes – one of the highest rates in the state. For those interested in tackling their chance of developing the disease, the program will be available to communities surrounding the area’s 10 Y branches beginning July 1.

    While that mantra may have worked for Kevin Costner in “Field of Dreams,” it doesn’t necessarily work for credit union websites.
    It does mean figuring out where your target audience is engaging (social
    networking sites) and developing a strategy for how
    you’re going to reach them.
