The Uniontown Area YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program is an intensive, lifestyle intervention program with two specific goals: to lose greater than 7% of your bodyweight and to increase your physical activity to 150 minutes per week.

Participants in the program experience 25 one hour sessions over the course of the year. Participants meet with a lifestyle coach weekly for the first 16 weeks, twice a month for the next two months, and once per month for the last six months of the program.

The Uniontown Area YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program uses a curriculum approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Uniontown Area YMCA is a provider registered with the CDC through its Diabetes Program Recognition Program (DPRP).  The program is open to all individuals who qualify, regardless of their insurance status. You do not need to be a YMCA member to participate.

To qualify you must be:

At least 18 years of age.

Overweight (BMI greater than or equal to 25).

At risk for or have been diagnosed with prediabetes:

Fasting Plasma Glucose 100-125 mg/dL or
2-hour Plasma Glucose 140-199 mg/dL or
A1c between 5.7% and 6.4% or
A previous diagnosis of gestational diabetes or
If a blood test is not available, a qualifying risk score based on a combination of risk factors including family history and age.

The program takes place in a private setting in the YMCA in a small group, supportive environment.

The Uniontown Area YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps adults at risk of developing type 2 diabetes reduce their risk for developing the disease by taking steps that will improve their overall health and well-being. Research by the National Institutes of Health has shown that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of new cases of type two diabetes by 58%, and by 71% in adults over the age of 60.
