Core Program (16 weeks)
The Tampa Y now offers a one-year diabetes prevention program developed to reduce the risk of diabetes in individuals with pre-diabetes. The first 16 weekly sessions will cover nutrition, physical activity, and behavior modification to help participants achieve two primary goals: reduce body weight by 7% and participate in regular physical activity. Upon completion of the 16 weeks participants move into a maintenance program for the remaining eight months. Financial assistance for this program will be offered using a sliding fee scale.
