American Diabetes Association Alert Day

Tuesday, March 22nd is American Diabetes Association Alert Day® and as the leading community-based provider committed to improving the nation's health, the T. Boone Pickens YMCA is encouraging people in our community to learn the risks of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes and steps they can take to prevent the disease.

We encourage all community members to take a diabetes risk assessment by visiting  If you are at risk for prediabetes, it's best to meet with your primary care physician to discuss your options.

To help combat the spike in prediabetes, the Y offers the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program, an innovative lifestyle modification program that helps adults with prediabetes reduce their risk for developing type 2 diabetes.  For more information, please contact Shelli Cheyney at
