  1. Great article, Cherise, thank you! It’s great to see more and more programs and resources being developed to resolve one of our community’s priority needs.

    The YMCA of Greater San Antonio, in partnership with Metro Health, provides a free diabetes prevention program. The program is a 12-month group-based nutrition and fitness program that is designed for individuals at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes or who have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes.

    The Y also provides the Y Living Program, a free 12-week program that provides holistic wellness classes that empower families to obtain total health through enriching the Spirit, Mind and Body. Families learn techniques to reduce and prevent chronic illness that results from obesity and sedentary lifestyles through educational seminars and physical activity.
