We are happy to announce we are now running the Life! Program online via Telehealth!
In partnership with Diabetes Victoria, the Life! program is here to help in preventing diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
What is the Life! program?
Run by our facility Exercise Physiologists, the Life! program is a free Victorian healthy lifestyle program that helps you reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Changing your lifestyle isn’t easy, especially on your own. The Life! program gives you the motivation and support needed to make and maintain positive changes and to live a healthier and more active lifestyle. This approach has been shown to be more effective than taking medication and has a long-term positive effect on your health.
Since 2007, over 60,000 Victorians have learnt more about the steps they can take to live a healthy life. Funded by the Victorian Government and managed by Diabetes Victoria it is the biggest prevention program of its type in Australia.
I am interested, what are the next steps?
The first step is to check your risk with the AUSDRISK Test. If you score higher than 12 and have a Body Mass Index score of 25 or higher (or 23 if you self-identify as being of Asian background*) then you may be eligible for the free Life! program. You can check your risk right now by using our free online test. It will only take 3 minutes.
