Members of the James City Lions Club learned about the positive impact the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) can have on individuals with pre-diabetes. Amanda Engelmeyer, the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA's DPP Coordinator, described the program and outlined opportunities for Lions to serve the community. Such opportunities include referring pre-diabetes individuals to the program, serving as Lifestyle Coaches and joining the program's advisory board.
