Chronic Diseases, like heart disease, cancer, stroke, or diabetes, affect 3 out of 5 Americans. Chronic Disease Prevention Programs at the YMCA offer both physical and emotional support for those living with a chronic disease. Thanks to many donors, these programs are provided to participants for free or at a low cost, which allows us to help bridge the gap between doctor care and regular life.
At the Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA, a supportive community is essential to a healthy mind, body, and spirit. That’s why we are a community partner in preventing chronic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Our programs help educate the community about healthy habits to prevent chronic diseases from taking hold. The YMCA has the equipment and spaces to provide high-quality programs and the YMCA of the USA training allows our staff to become experts in developing healthy habits.
