Diabetes Prevention and Heart Disease Education Day

On Saturday, March 24th A Diabetes Prevention and Heart Disease Education Day was held in the Hall of Fame Room.  Preventing Type 2 diabetes was presented in the way of crafts, activities and games to youth in our sports, dance and swim programs.  Taylor Wiseman, a Medical Student rotating at Frederick Memorial Hospital hosted the event and it was well received.  The Y is currently undergoing assessments and training to offer the Diabetes Prevention Program through the YMCA.  A tentative date to begin the program is January, 2019.  Look for more “Lunch and Learn” opportunities at the downtown Y on our website, flyers and information TV’s throughout the facility.
