November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. Fayette County has a significant presence of Type 2 Diabetes, have you been told you are diabetic or prediabetic?

The Uniontown Area YMCA is offering an amazing, evidence-based program called Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). In the DPP program, trained lifestyle coaches facilitate a small group of adults to discuss behavior changes that can improve the health of participants.

Research has shown that YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of new cases of type 2 diabetes by as much as 58% and by 71% among adults aged 60 years or older. But this program is available for any age as long as you meet the requirements to qualify.

Our program begins in January of 2020, please call today to find out more or to schedule an intake interview. You can also learn more at www.ymca.net/diabetes-prevention Help your health in the new year, you'll be so glad you did!

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a research-based physical activity and well-being program designed to help all adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health. In this FREE 12 week program Participants work with Y staff trained in supportive cancer care to safely achieve their goals such as building muscle mass and strength; increasing flexibility and endurance; and improving confidence and self-esteem.

By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is helping people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind, and body. Medical Consent is required to participate.

Several cohorts take place each year in the daytime and in the evening. To learn more about LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, contact Jacquelyn or Pam at 724.438.2584.

Open to all cancer survivors, including those actively treating.

The Livestrong program at the Uniontown YMCA was the perfect platform to achieve my goal of returning to a “normal” life after cancer treatment. I typically walked or performed household chores for exercise so the thought of going to a gym was intimidating. Some of the things I worried about were: will I be able to keep up with the other people in the group, am I strong enough to perform the exercises, and will I look silly trying to perform the exercises. However, the opportunity to share this experience with other cancer survivors helped me take the first step and I am so thankful that I did. I really enjoyed learning how to use the cardio and weight equipment and especially enjoyed our introduction to the variety of classes offered at the Y. The instructors were very knowledgeable and provided technical and motivational support that exceeded my expectations. Sharing this experience with other survivors was a valuable and rewarding benefit of the program. Their continued encouragement and willingness to open up about their similar doubts and fears gave me strength and inspiration. I am happy to share that I completed the Livestrong program and I am sad that it is over. The good news is that I am physically stronger. The great news is that I am emotionally stronger.

Feeling blessed, Theresa Yaczola
