YMCA Piqua branch offers free diabetes program starting Sept. 13


PIQUA — The Miami County YMCA is currently enrolling participants for a seven-week program at its Piqua branch on diabetes education, support and self-management.

Each session will concentrate on various topics to help participants establish good habits and learn how to manage their pre-diabetes or diabetes symptoms. The program is designed to bring awareness and education to the community about the risk factors related to diabetes and chronic illnesses associated with diabetes.

This program is free for YMCA members or nonmembers. It includes seven weeks of educational seminars, a free fitness orientation plus a membership with the Miami County YMCA during the program and for two months upon completion. The class will be held on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. beginning on Sept. 13 at the YMCA’s Piqua Branch, 223 W. High St. This program is possible through funding from the United Way.

To register for the program or for more information, contact Heather Sever at the Miami County YMCA at 937-773-9622 or [email protected]. Registration can also be completed by the Miami County YMCA’s courtesy desks.
