Wellness

YMCA Buffalo Niagara serves as a leading voice on health and well-being initiatives here in Western New York. Having fostered programs like the National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP), Growing Up Fit, The Weight is Over, LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, and so many others, the Y is able to identify the needs and concerns of people throughout our community. The Y is able to then address these key areas of concern through programs that help individuals lead healthier, more active lives. Forging unique collaborations with health insurance providers such as Independent Health, BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York and Univera has also helped us to expand the number of Western New Yorkers we are able to positively impact.
