My health for life
My health for life is a free healthy lifestyle program
designed to help people who are at high risk of chronic disease get
their health back on track.
Chronic disease, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and
stroke, is often influenced by lifestyle factors. My health for
life is about knowing your health risks and taking small steps
towards a healthier life so that your health stays on track and
your risk of future illness is minimised.
It is important to note that this program has a prevention
focus, so it is not open to people who already have diabetes but
could be ideal for a family member or friend.
You may be eligible if you are:
- Aged 45 years and over and have been identified by a health
professional as being at high risk of chronic disease (which
includes type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke)
- Aged 18 years and over and are of Aboriginal or Torres
