The Life! program is a free Victorian lifestyle modification program that helps you reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Run by expert health professionals, the program is delivered as a group course service.

Since the program began in 2008 over 55,000 Victorians have learnt more about the steps they can take to live a healthy life. Funded by the Victorian Government and managed by Diabetes Victoria it is the biggest prevention program of its type in Australia.  The Life! program is designed to empower members of the public to take action on their health to prevent chronic diseases. Currently, Diabetes is the fastest growing chronic disease in Australia, but the year 2025 3 million people over the age of 25 will develop this chronic disease.
