North Carolina YMCAs are critical partners in improving individual and community health. Beyond a wide range of exercise classes, the Y has developed evidence-based prevention programs that bridge clinical care and health promotion/disease prevention programming in a supportive environment. YMCA certified health coaches connect people to the support they need to make lifestyle changes that improve health outcomes and reduce health care costs.

These programs are offered virtualy to all 100 counties in North Carolina.
