My Y Story: Megan
Community of Caring
Nearly everyone in Megan’s family has type 2 diabetes, so she knew there was a strong likelihood that she was at risk. A health screening at her workplace confirmed that she was in fact, borderline prediabetic. One-in-three Americans have prediabetes; yet only 7% know they have it.
The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program was the perfect solution for Megan. She signed up at her workplace and took the class with her coworkers. Since joining she’s lost weight, became more active, and plans to run a 5K.
