YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program
The YMCA of the Inland Northwest is not currently offering the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program. Due to changes in health care law, the program will now be offered through your health care provider. Individual plans vary, please check with your insurance provider.
Individuals interested in entering a CDC recognized Diabetes Prevention Program immediately, can do so with one of our community partners: Inland Northwest Health Services. INHS is starting new classes every month. The evidence-based Group Lifestyle Balance program, adapted from the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), is designed to help individuals make lifestyle changes to both prevent diabetes and prevent or treat metabolic syndrome.
They offer both an in-person and an online option. Individuals can register by visiting their website courseregistration.inhs.org and selecting Group Lifestyle Balance from their Community menu.
We are working with partners at the local, state and national level to help prepare the YMCA to serve our community and we are pleased that all of the major medical systems in Spokane are welcoming and supporting us as we seek a new role in Diabetes Prevention.
