Episode 1: South Shore YMCA

YMCA Southcoast has relaunched its Diabetes Prevention Program (YDPP). The YDPP is an evidence-based lifestyle change program to help people at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes prevent or prolong the development of the disease.

This program is a collaboration between the YMCA, Southcoast Health, the City of New Bedford Health Department and New Bedford Community Health (formerly the Greater New Bedford Community Health Center). Classes are now available in English, Portuguese and Spanish. Learn more here.
