Get Screened Before Cancer Develops

If you are 50 or over, high risk or symptomatic, don’t put it off.  Getting screened is the number one way you can help reduce your risk of colorectal cancer which is cancer of the colon or rectum.  

A colonoscopy helps find precancerous polyps (grapelike growths) in the lining of the colon or rectum so they can be removed before they turn into cancer. A colonoscopy also can find colorectal cancer early, when it can be more easily and successfully treated.  

Take our Colorectal Assessment Quizto learn more.

YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program

Have You Been Told You Have Pre-Diabetes?   Check Out The YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program: Diabetes often can be prevented through lifestyle changes such as losing weight and exercising. The Henry County YMCA is addressing the diabetes epidemic in Henry County with an evidence-based program developed by the national YMCA for people who are at risk of developing diabetes. The first class had six participants who attended classes on diabetes and prevention, exercised at the YMCA, lost weight and developed friendships and a support system. Lives were changed physically, mentally and emotionally as confidence was boosted to take steps to make personal lifestyle changes. A new class is now forming.
