Healthy Living Council ushers in new Healthy Living Center

The Hamilton Area YMCA announced recently that it has launched a collection of new Healthy Living Programs that will address a series of chronic diseases that affect our community. These programs will run out of the organization’s new “Healthy Living Center” in the JKR Branch on Whitehorse-Mercerville Road. 

This new group of programs is the product of the Hamilton Y’s Healthy Living Council – a group of experts throughout the community including doctors, nurses, nutritionists and other healthcare professionals that advise the Y’s staff on the healthcare needs of the community.

The Y’s new Healthy Living Programs include:
ACT! Youth Weight Management
THRIVE! Cancer Wellness Program
Delay the Disease Parkinson’s Program
One Step: Multiple Sclerosis
YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program

A sixth program, EnhanceFitness for arthritis patients, will begin running later in 2015.
