Improving the nation’s health and well-being
The Y is a leading community-based network committed to improving America’s health. We harness our vast network to help the nation battle chronic disease and improve individual and community health through programs that promote wellness, reduce risk of disease and help people reclaim their health. The result is a country that increasingly values health such that individuals and families make healthy choices and live in communities that support those choices.
At the Y, we are helping lead the transformation of health care from a system largely focused on treatment of illnesses to a collaborative community approach that emphasizes well-being, prevention and health maintenance.
Chronic Disease & Injury Prevention – Evidence based programs that address key social needs including childhood obesity, diabetes prevention, falls prevention, arthritis management and blood pressure management.
Family Time – Bringing families together to have fun and grow, so they can strengthen their own relationships and make connections with other families.
Heath, Well-Being & Fitness – Resources and guidance to maintain or improve health and wellness, so we can live our best lives at every age.
Sports & Recreation – Healthy lifestyle activities that bring together people with shared athletic and recreational interest, because lifelong rewards come from teamwork, friendly competition, and exercise.
