Mark Feldschuh, Victorian Branch President of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia has welcomed Diabetes Australia-Vic’s latest initiative to engage pharmacists in the holistic management of diabetes in Victoria.
Diabetes Australia–Vic has been funded for the roll-out of a type 2 diabetes prevention program – Life!
The Life! program aims to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by encouraging participants to set behavioural goals and make lifestyle changes based on the adoption of an active lifestyle and healthy diet.
The Life! program supports participants to work towards achieving their goals through a group based program, modelled on similar successful evidence based programs tested in Australia and other countries.
