Life! group course sessions at Monash

The Life! group course consists of seven session topics run across a 12-month period. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all sessions are currently run online. The introductory session (1 hour) is a one-on-one between you and your Life! facilitator. Your Life! facilitator will work with you to create health goals that are tailored to your needs and lifestyle. The first four group topics (30 minutes) are run weekly, group session five is at six months and the final session is 12 months after starting the program.
