YMCA’s Diabetes Control Programs

The YMCA’s Diabetes Control Program is designed to help adult participants (18 and older) who have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes gain skills in lowering their HbA1c through daily healthy habits. The program is delivered by a trained Lifestyle Coach through peer-facilitation and various hands-on activities, including a grocery store tour, interactive cooking and group activity. The YMCA of Greater Richmond’s work on diabetes control is now published in The Diabetes Educator.  Read the article here.
