The Justice Department reached a settlement agreement today with the YMCA of the Triangle in Raleigh, North Carolina, to resolve allegations that it violated Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by refusing to assist a child with diabetes-related tasks, including administration of the emergency medication Glucagon, so that the child could participate in a YMCA after-school program.

To find out more about this settlement agreement or the ADA, visit or call the Justice Departments toll-free ADA Information Line at 1-800-514-0301 or 1-800-514-0383 (TTY).
