YMCA Community Integrated Health

The Y is partnering with clinicians at the local level in order to help individuals prevent, delay, or live better with chronic conditions. Read more about their programs, including their Diabetes Prevention Program. 

Community integrated health is the effort to strengthen the linkages between traditional healthcare and community-based prevention strategies (like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program) in order to help individuals prevent, delay, or live better with chronic conditions. Community integrated health:

 

  • Increases access to care
  • Lowers costs
  • Prevents and addresses chronic disease
  • Reduces the effects of some social determinants of health

Community integrated health work is already happening at Ys across the country as they work to improve the health and well-being of all through our suite of chronic disease prevention programs.
