Kathy graduated with a BS from Simmons College and earned an MS in nutrition from Framingham State College. She serves as the Director of the Department of Nutrition as well as the Director of the Nutrition and Behavior Modification Programs for the Program for Weight Management at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. She also served as Co-Investigator on an NIH-funded obesity study, POUNDS LOST (Preventing Overweight Using Novel Dietary Strategies), and was the co-author of a recent study which suggests that weight loss is not about juggling fat, protein and carbohydrates as some commercial diets say; it’s about eating small portion sizes and cutting calories.
