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 ymca.net/diabetes.  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 scheyney@ymcadallas.org.
