Lifestyle Change Program
Summer 2019

Diabetes StatDid you know that for the first time in history, today’s children are not expected to outlive their parents. The current diabetes epidemic will threaten 1 in 3 children, and may rob them of up to 28 years of life. This doesn’t have to be the legacy we leave our youth. Jackie Robinson Family YMCA has partnered with Skinny Gene Project and Champions for Health to lead this program. The Skinny Gene Project’s Lifestyle Change Program is an evidence-based lifestyle change program that is recognized  by the CDC for effectively being able to help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. 

Our Jump Start for Health informational meetings are scheduled for early Summer 2019 with groups and classes forming soon thereafter. The schedule will be posted on this page as soon as it is known. To be added to the list for this program, email us at [email protected] or give us as call at 619-264-0144.
