Area diabetes program gets national recognition

The Door County Y's Diabetes Prevention Program is a success and is being recognized by the Centers for Disease Control.  The year-long program is now in its third year of helping residents referred by doctors to eat healthier, lose weight and get active.  Tonya Felhofer, Diabetes Prevention Program Coordinator, says people come into the program without great expectations and leave with a new, healthy outlook.


Felhofer says the diabetes prevention program is currently being offered for the first time at the Y's Northern Door Center on Gibraltar Road in Fish Creek.  There's still time for new participants to join that session.  A similar class is scheduled to start at the Y's Sturgeon Bay Center on Michigan Street in January.
