Type 2 diabetes can be prevented and the Life! program can help.
The Life! program is a healthy lifestyle program funded by the Victorian Government and run by Diabetes Victoria. Since 2007, more than 60,000 Victorians have joined the program and taken the first step to good health.
Life!’s dedicated team of health professionals support participants with evidence-based advice on nutrition, physical activity, sleep, managing stress and setbacks and goal setting. Participants can choose either the Life! telephone health coaching service or the group course, which is now running online due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The Life! program also offers a Financial Incentive Agreement for GPs: GPs receive up to $45 plus GST for every eligible referral into the program. For more information and to sign up to the Financial Incentive Agreement, contact the Life! program’s Primary Care Coordinator, Elleni Kaias, by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
