It’s such an important issue that it’s featured in two awareness initiatives. November is both American Diabetes Month and National Diabetes Awareness Month. With this increased attention on diabetes and prevention, it’s a great time to learn more, assess your risk, and see how the right diet can help you stay healthy.
November is Diabetes Awareness Month, so it’s the perfect time to address the importance of fitness not only for overall health, but for preventing Type II Diabetes. Are you exercising as much as you’d like, or as much as you should to stay healthy and fight disease? If not, the YMCA can help.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s the ideal time to learn more about cancer and understand the crucial role nutrition has in cancer prevention.
Physical fitness is important throughout your life – at every age and every stage. No one knows this more than the YMCA. That’s why we have classes and activities at all our branches and program centers to help people get active and stay active even if they’re facing – or especially if they’re facing – health challenges, from Parkinson’s Disease, to arthritis, to cancer.
