About the Life! program

The Life! program is a free Victorian healthy lifestyle program that helps you improve your eating habits, physical activity and stress management. Run by expert health professionals, the program is delivered as a group course or telephone health coaching service and shows you how to reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Changing your lifestyle isn’t easy, especially on your own. The Life! program gives you the motivation and support needed to make and maintain positive changes and to live a healthier and more active lifestyle. This approach has been shown to be more effective than taking medication and has a long-term positive effect on your health.

Since 2007, over 70,000 Victorians have learnt more about the steps they can take to live a healthy life. Funded by the Victorian Government and coordinated by Diabetes Victoria it is the largest prevention program of its kind in Australia.
