The Kearney Family YMCA is helping people change today for a healthier tomorrow.
The YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program, which is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Diabetes Program and supported by the Diabetes Prevention and Control Alliance, aims to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
“We’re lucky that the city of Kearney has something like this,” said YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program Coordinator Laura Aden. “Obesity and diabetes are an epidemic in our country.”
The Kearney Family YMCA is the first in Nebraska to offer the diabetes prevention program. There are 81 YMCAs in 34 states offering the program.
