Podcast #12 - YMCA Pursues Community Prevention

The more than 2,600 YMCAs of the USA are not only the largest not-for-profit community service organizations in the United States; they also are collectively the nation’s largest providers of health and well-being programs, serving 21 million children and adults of all ages, races, faiths, backgrounds, abilities and income levels. The YMCAs have committed themselves to providing community preventive services that encourage healthy lifestyles. In some cases, they've proven an ability to deliver those services effectively at a fraction of the normal cost. On this show, we’re discussing their programs with Katie Clarke Adamson, Director of Health Partnerships and Policy for YMCA of the USA.
