Stay in Shape is an after-school and in-school program designed to promote knowledge and skills of healthy living to prevent diseases among school children and youth in the communities served by MGH HealthCare Centers. Stay in Shape has been in operation since 2000. It was a program for girls until 2012 when the program started to serve boys in middle and elementary schools.
