Group Weight Management
Your risk of chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease, is affected by your weight and also where your body fat is stored. People who carry fat around their waist (apple shaped) could be at increased risk of chronic disease.
There is a simple solution and it is called the Life! Program and it is Free for most Victorians. The Life! group course involves a one-on-one introductory session (You can book an appointment with Kirsten at Advantage Health Point clinic on Thursdays and Bairnsdale Family Medical Centre on Fridays) and five group sessions run across a six month period. The group course offers you the knowledge, skills, support and expert advice needed to make lifestyle choices to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Further information can be found at www.lifeprogram.org.au or contact Kirsten your Life! facilitator for Gippsland.
Kirsten’s next two Life! courses in 2018 are starting Tuesday Feb 6, 6-7.30pm and Friday Feb 9 , 1-2.30pm in Bairnsdale.
