We are excited to let you know that the Atrius Health Department of Weight and Lifestyle Medicine is offering Virtual Lifestyle Medicine Shared Medical Appointments (SMA) every four weeks.
SMAs are doctor-led visits (which means they are covered by insurance) that you have with other patients who have common health challenges. Patients learn from the healthcare team and from each other in this supportive and interactive environment. The weekly, 90-minute sessions allow for meaningful group education and engaging conversations.
Our 4-week SMA programs focus on how to integrate science-based weight-loss strategies into our busy lives, and learn to manage, delay or reverse diabetes, prediabetes or insulin resistance.
Facilitators: Pascale Carbonara, MD and Christine Vasiliadis, certified health coach
Days & Times: Fridays, 3:00pm-4:30pm, virtually through Zoom
New groups start on the 1st Friday of the month and run for four consecutive, weekly sessions.
If you are an Atrius Health patient and would like to register for a SMA, or if you have any questions about the program, please contact us at 617-657-6433.
Space is limited, and we do ask that you commit to attending all 4 appointments to get the most from the visits.
