On Thursday we held a workshop with a focus on exercise and healthy eating. It was great to have so many people attend. Ben Southam from Pace Health Management did an excellent presentation on the benefits of exercise, how it helps prevent chronic disease, and how easy it is to get started.
Ben also talked about the Life! program, what it offered, and who was eligible to take part. The Life! program is a free Victorian lifestyle modification program that helps you reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Our very own diabetes educator Wendy Anthony held a practical workshop on food label comparisons, and introduced the FoodSwitch app – a quick way a smartphone can help us choose healthier options.
Thank you to all who attended, we look forward to seeing you at our next workshop!
