Healthy lifestyle programs

Diabetes Queensland offers healthy lifestyle programs for communities and workplaces, aimed at raising awareness of the risk of type 2 diabetes and its complications 

Our programs inform and support people to better their health and wellbeing, know their health risks as well as increase their knowledge about the prevention of type 2 diabetes. 

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 Strait Islander descent and are at high risk of chronic disease 
  • Age 18 years and over with pre-existing conditions (E.g. previous history of gestational diabetes or have been diagnosed with high blood pressure or high cholesterol).
