Healthy lifestyle programs
Let’s Prevent Geraldton – Oct 24
Putting your health first is not always easy.
Carbs are confusing, exercise is exhausting and daily life is a challenge.
We can help.
Sign up for Let’s Prevent, a free online health program that will help you set a personal plan to get your body back to its best, inside and out.
Let’s Prevent is an informal program that will get you thinking about the nuts and bolts of your body and the simple steps you can take to get it working at its best.
What is Let’s Prevent?
Let’s Prevent is a free program that will put you on the path to better health and wellbeing.
You will discover how to lose weight and keep it off – which will have a positive effect on your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels. Plus you will also be on track to prevent type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
What does it involve?
Let’s Prevent starts off with a face-to-face group session, where you will meet other people on their own health journey.
The session is delivered by two facilitators (qualified health professionals) who will talk you about how the body works. But this isn’t a lecture. This is an interactive session during which our facilitators will support you to better understand your personal health and the simple steps you can take to improve it.
Once you’ve developed this understanding our facilitators will support you in setting realistic health goals that you can actually achieve, and sustain. But – to be clear – they won’t set them for you. These goals are your choice because we know that, when it comes to your health and lifestyle, you’re the expert.
We don’t leave you there! After the first session you’ll have continued support and guidance from our health professionals via regular telephone sessions and an opportunity to come back for a follow-up session. You’ll also get practical tips from our monthly e-newsletter and you’ll able to join our growing Let’s Prevent online community.
