Prevent type 2 diabetes with Life!

Prevent type 2 diabetes with Life!

Life! is a FREE group program for eligible people at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, developed by Diabetes Victoria:

  • The Life! group course involves a one-on-one introductory session and five group sessions run across a six month period.  There is also a follow up session at 12 months.
  • The group course offers people the knowledge, skills, support and expert advice needed to make lifestyle choices to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
  • The group environment provides support and motivation to help people reach their health goals.
  • Each session is run by a qualified health professional and runs for approximately 120 minutes and partners/friends are welcome to provide extra support.
  • Participants receive a comprehensive participant workbook full of practical information on nutrition and physical activity, goal setting, sleep, stress and lapses.
  • Life! is facilitated by the Health & Wellness Team at EACH, with our next program starting October 2018 at our Wantirna South site.
