The Massachusetts General Hospital Diabetes Center and Mass General Brigham Health Plan are pleased to announce an exciting new program, the PATH TO LIFESTYLE CHANGE. This program is designed to help you lose weight and delay or prevent type 2 diabetes.

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.
