Healthy lifestyle programs
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).
