Benefits of working with a Certified Health Coach

Jo Calnan, CHC, CMES, CPT


The role of a health coach in managing pre-diabetes and diabetes is to help the patient design a plan to move forward with wellness initiatives related to nutrition, activity and stress management.  Our health coach works closely with our diabetes nurse educator, nutritionists and weight management team to ensure that patients have tools to create sustainable habits that fit within their current lifestyle.

Health coaching is a complimentary service offered to our patients and does not require insurance referrals or co-pays.  Routine check-ins via phone or email are provided to patients that prefer additional support and the primary care provider is updated regularly within the patient’s chart.

A health coaching session can be arranged by contacting Jo Calnan at (781) 756-7664 or emailing
