Health professionals can play a key role in preventing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
“If you really want to make a change, or just properly educate yourself about your heath, I would recommend the Life! program every day of the week.”
In January 2017 Andrew Morley reached a point where he was no longer happy with his weight or eating habits. The 29-year-old insurance company worker was 136.8 kilograms when his concerned GP recommended he join the free Life! program.
Since Andrew started the program he has lost 30.2 kilograms. But more importantly, he has regained his life. Andrew says “As well as being a lot more active and exercising most days, the difference in my appearance and the reaction from others has given my confidence and self-esteem a much needed boost.” To find out more about Andrew’s story take a look at the Life! website .
You can refer your patients to the Life! program today. Life! also offers a financial incentive for GPs and pharmacists to refer eligible patients. Find out more online, via email or phone 13 RISK (13 74 75).
