Study Summary

The study aims to randomize 250 participants to 1 of 2 arms: a.) an Active Intervention Group (based on the Look AHEAD* ILI) or b.) a Comparison Group (based on the Look AHEAD DSE Comparison group) to test the hypothesis that a multicomponent, multilevel behavioral weight loss intervention (Active Intervention Group) adapted for underserved groups and delivered through Health Information Technology (Health IT) tools via the Electronic Health Record (EHR) patient portal, will result in significantly greater weight loss 12 months after enrollment compared to the Comparison Group. *The Look AHEAD study was a multi-center, randomized clinical trial involving overweight and obese persons with type 2 diabetes, aimed to determine the effects on the cardiovascular outcomes of an intensive lifestyle intervention (ILI) for weight loss, in comparison to the diabetes support and education intervention (DSE).

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
