Diabetes Australia – Victoria offers organisations FREE sessions on how to prevent type 2 diabetes, along with the opportunity to deliver a Life! course within the workplace. Life! sessions can be delivered before work, incorporated into lunch time or after hours. We will work with organisations to tailor the course to find the best fit for their workplace and staff. A suitable room will be required for each session.
Workers will engage in goal setting activities and be given the tools to make manageable and sustainable changes to reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. There are five group sessions that equip participants with the skills, knowledge, support and expert advice needed to adopt healthier lifestyle habits, with the aim of reducing their risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
“The Life! program was a success at Braeside and it definitely made a real difference to the majority who participated. It’s amazing the positive impact it has on your health by cutting out fat and moving your body (exercise).”
Operations Manager Scott Henderson, BlueScope Steel
