TAILORED PROGRAMS

In addition to the standard Get Healthy Service, we offer two tailored programs.

Type 2 Diabetes Prevention program

This program focuses on empowering participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent type 2 diabetes. It was developed in response to the growing rates of Type 2 Diabetes in NSW.

Is this program for me?

This program was specifically designed for people at high risk of type 2 diabetes. If you are over 40 years of age, or are Aboriginal, your Get Healthy Service health coach will assess your risk of type 2 diabetes by determining your AUSDRISK score. If you have an AUSDRISK score of 12 or more then you will be enrolled in this tailored program.

Not sure if you are at risk? Find out your AUSDRISK score here.

If you already have type 2 diabetes, you will be enrolled in the standard Get Healthy Information and Coaching Service.

What’s included?

3 additional coaching sessions that focus on your personal risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Get Healthy in Pregnancy Program

Get Healthy in Pregnancy is a free confidential information and/or telephone coaching service for pregnant women in NSW aged 16 and over. At Get Healthy in Pregnancy we understand the individual and changing needs of pregnant women.

Their focus is on lifestyle factors such as healthy eating and maintaining an active lifestyle which is safe for you and your baby. They will also help you after your baby is born.

Benefits of healthy eating and being active:

Better sleep, more energy, less lower back pain, reduced stress and anxiety, less nausea and heartburn, an easier labour, a reduction in pregnancy induced complications, better bowel habits and faster post baby recovery.
