Services in Queensland My health for life My health for life is a free, six-month program where you work with a health coach to achieve your health goal. It is a Queensland Government-funded initiative, delivered by an alliance of health organisations, including Diabetes Australia. It is designed to help Queenslanders stay well and lessen their risk of developing conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.Choosing either small group sessions, or one-on-one phone coaching, you explore topics such as nutrition, physical activity, understanding your personal risk of developing health conditions and how to make healthier choices a part of everyday life. With the support of your coach, you will also develop an action plan. Whether your goal is to get more active, eat better, stress less, or lose weight, the focus is on building a step-by-step plan to help you achieve your goals over time. My health for life recognises that everyone has their reasons for improving their health whether it is losing weight, eating better or moving more.It is important to note that this program has a prevention focus, so it is not open to people who already have diabetes but could be ideal for a family member or friend.
