Evidence-based Health Intervention (EBHI) programs deliver community-based health and wellness services in innovative new ways rooted in a common commitment to preventing and combating chronic disease. These programs are open to all,  not just current YMCA members. Registration is required to take advantage of these different programs that help our community become healthier and have a higher quality of life.

Brain & Body Fitness has been shown to improve physical fitness and mood in people living with dementia. The program is safe and effective and is a fun social program taught by qualified and trained YMCA staff.
