IN CASE YOU MISSED IT... We're excited to offer you a FREE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE PROGRAM in August 2018. The Life! Program will teach you how to reduce your risk of chronic disease by making small changes to your lifestyle.
The friendly group environment will support you every step of the way in achieving and maintaining your healthy lifestyle goals over a six session program, running every second Thursday from 9.00 -11.00am at GLCH in Lakes Entrance.
The first session will be a one on one appointment with the nurse facilitator at GLCH, and will go for around an hour, working with you to set some personal health goals.
The next four group sessions will be about 2 hours every second week. These sessions include interactive presentations with a diabetes educator, chronic condition nurse, dietician, mindfulness meditation facilitator and an exercise physiologist.
The last group session is held four months after the completion of the course and is a great opportunity to gain further support from the group in achieving your health goals. A fantastic drumming workshop will also help to boost your motivation!
