About the Life! Program

The Life! Program offers you the skills, support and expert advice needed to make lifestyle choices to prevent the onset of Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

The Life! Program is not a lecture, trained health professionals give you individual attention and learn about you and your lifestyle. Together, you set an exercise routine and healthy eating plan that you can easily maintain for a long healthy life. The small group provides support to help you stay motivated and on track. The program includes:

Expert health coaching: The Life! program is run by trained facilitators who are health professionals including dietitians and exercise professionals.

Individual plan tailored to your needs: Your Life! facilitator or coach will work with you to create a customised plan to change your lifestyle.

Support and help: Each participant is provided with a workbook; consisting of activities and materials relating to nutrition and physical activity, sleep, stress and lapses.

Duration: The Life! Program consists of an initial one-on-one session with your program facilitator followed by the 5 session Life! Program at Monash. The first 4 sessions will be held fortnightly, with the final session to be held in the following months to review your progress and address any questions you may have.
