Doctor to Discuss how to get Active Again at New London Event
Knee pain is a common complaint, affecting people of all ages. The pain can be the result of an injury like torn cartilage or medical conditions like arthritis, gout and infections. Minor knee pain can be treated with physical therapy or braces. In some cases, surgery may be required.


A free ThedaCare community program is designed to help people who suffer from knee pain. John Lindstrom, MD, will talk about how to eliminate knee pain and become physically active again. "I cannot assure people that they will have no knee pain," said Dr. Lindstrom, a physician and surgeon with ThedaCare Orthopedics Plus in New London. "Reducing existing pain is the goal."  See More... 


Lesley Fuerst, APNP, Specializes in Family Practice for ThedaCare

Lesley Fuerst of New London feels right at home at ThedaCare Physicians - Clintonville. Fuerst, a family practice nurse practitioner, was familiar with the clinic through her clinical rotation while in school.  


"I knew it was a good clinic," said Fuerst, who joined the family practice in April. "I like working in my own community."


Fuerst specializes in family care for every age. She is also on rotation at Shawano Medical Center. She received her undergraduate and master's degrees in nursing from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, with an emphasis in family practice. Board-certified, Fuerst has special interest in women's health and chronic disease as well as pediatric and elderly care. Her past experience includes serving in the Air Force. Fuerst said serving in the Air Force "has helped me become a very well rounded provider."


Previously Fuerst worked at Community Care in Waupaca County before returning to ThedaCare. "It's a very close knit clinic," she said "It's smaller and very community oriented. The people who come here generally know all the providers here. Everybody is very nice and very respectful of each other."


Fuerst enjoys the variety of care she can provide to patients young and old. "I like treating patients, keeping our community healthy," she said. "I like to take time with my patients and feel like they have the time they need. I listen to them, make sure they know they're important and their concerns are important to me. I like working on a plan of care for them that works for them individually."


Lesley and her husband Greg own and operate 1st Electrical Contacting, Inc. in New London.

On Monday, Dec. 9th through Thursday, Dec. 12th, Indulge Aesthetics, LLC will be offering a Christmas special on Chemical Peels for $25.00 and Botox for $9.00 per unit from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m..

Why does Waupaca County Need a Shelter? 

I wanted to reach out to you and share with you some exciting news. We are in the process of gathering up interested stakeholders to pursue a vision for a Shelter (homeless) for Waupaca County.  Many are in agreement that this need does exist and we are rallying around this Community need to see this vision become a reality.  I wanted to reach out to you to see if you may know of an interested party that might also be passionate about this similar vision?   


As part of next steps, we are in the process of identifying interested parties/stakeholders and forming a non-profit and a Board of Directors.  Our goal is to have this established by the end of January.  Representatives of different agencies, groups, school districts, and individuals are stepping forward to respond. 


Please feel free to share my contact name and information with others who you may know that may be interested in responding to a growing need that does exist within "our community" in a manner that would be proactive in promoting education, healthy life skills, individual growth, and extending a hand up. 



Warm Regards,

Lori Prahl
