YMCA USA partners with United Health Group to help tackle Diabetes

In a pioneering move the YMCA of the USA and the UHG are partnering to offer community driven exercise programs to help combat the growing problem of Diabetes and Obesity.

Paid for by the insurer, UHG through a preventative model is seeking to stop the problem before it becomes an even bigger, by offering its members the chance to participate in a landmark Diabetes Prevention Program developed by the University of Indiana and funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

When considering the importance of maintaining our lean muscle, strength and ability to exercise, this inovative combination of publicly funded acadenic research, community based organisation and the forsight of UHG offers a proactive blue print, as we look to stem the unabated rise of diabetes and obesity.
