Diabetes Prevention Program Information Session
Dec 7 @ 6:00 pm – 6:30 pm

We are excited to announce that the New Canaan YMCA will be offering the Y’s National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) in January. The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program is a lifestyle intervention program that can help you actively engage in moving towards your personal health and wellness goals. Participation in this program at the YMCA will connect you with a lifestyle coach and a greater community of like-minded health-seekers that will motivate you in your journey towards a healthier lifestyle.

If you have been diagnosed with prediabetes or believe you may be at risk for developing diabetes, the Y is here to help you! This small-group program can help you eat healthier, find new ways to engage in regular physical activity, and lose weight, which can delay or even prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes. Led by trained lifestyle coaches, the program strives to help participants achieve two primary goals:

• Reduce body weight by 5-7%
• Increase physical activity to 150 minutes per week

Information Sessions:
We are hosting an information session on Wednesday, December 7, at 6:00 PM. You will have an opportunity to learn more about the program, meet the coaches, and ask questions.
