Receive diabetes education for children at the YMCA.

When you have a little one with diabetes, it may be hard to find good resources for diabetes education. The Y, in partnership with IU Health, can help.

We're dedicated to providing diabetes education.

There are 460,000 diabetics in Indiana, and 62,000 are children between the ages of 10 and 17. IU Health and the YMCA are dedicated to providing education to help manage and combat diabetes in the community.

Let IU Health and the YMCA help you manage diabetes and its risks.

Quality, effective diabetes care for children shouldn’t be hard to find. Keeping kids happy and healthy isn’t always easy, but we want to help you change that.

Through our partnership, IU Health and the Lafayette Family YMCA provide care and resources necessary for managing diabetes, learning about its risks, and taking steps toward prevention.
