Hundreds of residents at the YMCA of Central Ohio will be placed in new accommodations over the next few years as the organization leaves its current downtown building at 40 W. Long Street.

A collection of community service groups is hoping they can get a tax break from the state with the help of a new bill. The measure would boost gyms like the YMCA.

A new study suggests that "bromances," or male friendships, are important to men's health. And, new research reveals that the common idea of a "midlife crisis" is a rarer occurrence than previously believed. Also, with more than 80 million Americans who have pre-diabetes, programs like the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program have helped many of these people at risk. Now, there is a plan to expand Medicare to cover similar programs across the country.
