A team of researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH), and other institutions have identified more than two dozen genetic regions that may affect individuals’ food intake.
The Path to Lifestyle Change is being directed by Linda Delahanty, MS, RD, the Director of Nutrition and Behavioral Research at the Mass General Diabetes Center. She was one of the architects of the lifestyle programs developed for the landmark Diabetes Prevention Program and Look AHEAD lifestyle intervention trials. Professor Delahanty has over 25 years of experience designing and delivering lifestyle programs nationally and internationally that have achieved top performance and positive health outcomes.
This 2-year program, based on solid research, will be offered in a telephone conference group setting by Mass General Diabetes Center dietitians. The program will cover the basics of nutrition and physical activity and offer you cutting-edge behavior strategies and skills to help you lose weight, keep it off, be more active and maintain a healthier lifestyle.
The program is a fully covered benefit for AllWays Health members (and eligible family). Click here to take the short quiz. If you score at least a “5”, you may be eligible for this program.
