I worked with the YMCA of Delaware, Hilliard, and Gahanna in two evidence based programs; Healthy Weight and Your Child and Delay the Disease. Both programs are evidence based programs that rely on data to run the program better and how they structure it. Having the programs backed up with data and other evidence based material, allows The YMCA to have accreditation with their programs.
