Diabetes Prevention Underway in Vineland

May 2, 2015 | Community News, Vineland

As one of the first Live Healthy Vineland initiatives, the Cumberland Cape Atlantic YMCA will be offering the YMCA diabetes prevention program.

Classes for Vineland city employees kicked off at Vineland City Hall in April, followed by programs for the community at Bottino’s Shoprite Supermarket.

The YMCA Diabetes Prevention program gives participants the skills and support they need to make lasting healthy lifestyle changes.

“We are so thankful Bottino’s stepped up to sponsor this program for Vineland residents,” said Lisa Scheetz, project manager for New Jersey Partnership for Healthy Kids-Vineland. “Thanks to Bottino’s and the Y, participants will enjoy a safe space where they can feel comfortable sharing and learning in private. It’s all about achieving a healthy weight, boosting energy levels, reducing the risk for diabetes and improving health for life.”

In addition, thank you to the Philadelphia Reinvestment Fund for providing a $10,000 grant to offer the YDPP free of charge to the citizens of Vineland.
