A Program at the YMCA for Martin’s Point Health Care Patients and Members

Martin’s Point Health Care has partnered with the YMCA of Southern Maine to provide our patients and health plan members with a supportive 12-week program to encourage physical activity, wellness education, and building habits of healthy living. The program’s group setting fosters relationships, accountability, and partnerships around healthy-living activities.
