Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP)

Diabetes Prevention Program

We’re collaborating with Conemaugh Diabetes Institute to bring the Diabetes Prevention Program back to the Y. This program is for individuals who are pre-diabetic or who are at risk for becoming diabetic. Participants learn about healthy eating and increasing physical activity to reduce the risk of developing diabetes. Individuals who are successful in the program can reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by over 50%!

Visit the Conemaugh Diabetes Institute’s website for a risk assessment and for more information about their prevention program and support group. 

For more information, call Kristina Marinkovich, Director of Wellness & Chronic Disease Programs at the Greater Johnstown Community YMCA at 814.535.8381×226

The Nautilus Room will be closed Friday, April 22 from 8:30 a.m. to approximately 1 p.m. for installation of new bikes and treadmills.
