Type 2 Diabetes Program
Bayside Health Nook offer an 8 week exercise and education program to assist clients with Type 2 Diabetes.
The program is provided by our dietitian and exercise physiologist, and involves:
Individual initial assessment
8 group sessions of exercise and education
Sessions are held in a friendly and social group setting with other patients who are there for the same condition.
It is partially funded through Medicare, which means there is only a small out of pocket cost for those who attend.
This is a great opportunity to make a positive change to your health and take steps to build good habits, improve your knowledge, have accountability and exercise in a comfortable environment. Having the guidance of qualified, university educated providers who really understand diabetes makes achieving your health goals achievable.
