Diabetes prevention program thrives in Door County

The Door County YMCA’s diabetes prevention class has already proven uniquely successful compared to other locations, and it is set to add a new wrinkle beginning with the September session. Instructor Tonya Felhofer credits the tight-knit small town community along with participation from organizations like the Door County Medical Center for allowing the program to succeed here where it is stagnant elsewhere. Felhofer says the results speak for themselves.


COVID-19 made the group have to learn how to operate remotely, and that will allow new participants to register from across the country, as far away as Colorado. Felhofer says the program is structured so that individuals take more and more responsibility for their lifestyle choices. She says that should translate well to a remote learning setting.
