    lifestyle change

    Hello to everyone on this wonderful forum!
    Here's a sentence:
    By diagnosing an illness early, there is more hope that lifestyle change and medications can help avoid complications.

    My question is related to the grammatical structure of this sentence: is it a misprint or is it right to say "there is more hope that lifestyle change" and not "...that lifestyle changes", for example?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: lifestyle change

    'Change' is a noun here. Lifestyle change = change in lifestyle.
