“This is a center without walls. In collaboration with others at Joslin and elsewhere, our goal is to bring innovative solutions to patients at Joslin and beyond, leveraging our leading expertise in clinical care, research, education and technology. We aim to help people make changes to their lifestyle by providing innovative prescriptions for health and wellness, tailored to the individual.”
